HELP - Making an Omas Ogiva Demonstrator Work Well



Recommended Posts

I obviously need some help!    I have the following Omas Ogiva demonstrator (which was my first demonstrator) and I've never been happy with the ink flow.   When it work, it was an awesome writer.    The issue was ink supply.   It was designed to use Mountblanc type cartridges which are so small and last about 1 day.    I recently tried to use a Waterman converter.   It seemed to fit but again, was not perfect.      The original design was to take two Mountblanc cartridges, insert them in opposite directions and that would hold them in place.    

 

Does anyone have any idea what I can do?   I have 4 or 5 other Omas's (actually 6 - just counted) but they are all piston fillers!    I love this pen and just want it to work!   Thanks in advance for the help!

Did you try long Waterman Cartridge ? Current production I mean..

 

I have a ton of old Waterman cartridges but was really hoping to put a converter in it and have it work.   I may be out of luck but thanks for the suggestion.

Assuming the converter works as intended and has a snug fit on the section:

-test with a really wet ink such as Herbin Bleu des Profondeurs

-if this doesn’t help, then prime the feed by rotating the converter knob until there is some visible ink between the feed’s fins. If the pen now writes well, the problem is ink flow from converter to feed. If not, the nib needs to be adjusted for a wetter flow.

Mr Rene -  I don't think the cartridge was current production.   I haven't bought a Waterman since 2009 or so.
