I got my JinHao 200 yesterday

After a wait of just 10 days, my JinHao 200 arrived from China yesterday.

I bought it mainly for the pretty acrylic.  But, it turns out it is very comfortable to use.  I would have preferred a plastic grip, but the metal one feels fine.

 

The nib is the same as my JinHao 51A, and like it, also needed work.  It was slightly misaligned and dry.  It is marked with an F and is supposedly a .5mm.

The cap is very thin walled where it threads on to the barrel.  I'll be careful not to over tighten it.  It posts nicely.  It was $10.36 with free shipping on Ebay.  I like it.

I saw an ad for three finishes so bought all three.  If I'm luck, they will arrive next week.  Glad to here that the metal section is OK, I was worried about that.   I'll be interested in what work you end up doing to the nib.  I've not played with nibs much so would probably just make things worse.

I actually ended up applying a single wrap of 3/4 inch black electrical tape to the grip.

The chrome wasn't bad, but I like the feel of the tape better.  And, I think it looks alright.  I won't try to tell you how to tweak the nib because I wouldn't want you to mess it up by doing what I do.  There are better instructions available.  I'll just say I used my fingers and some shims.  I really like the pen.  Hopefully, yours will work well right out of the package.

Received my pens and all three are beautiful.   My wife immediately appropriated the red/pink one.   It has Diamine Oxblood in it and appears to write well.  So far I'm convinced this is a real deal for slightly over $10 US.  I'll say more when I get additional experience with the pen. Patrick

I've been using diamine Oxblood in one of these and it writes quite well.  I really enjoy this pen and at the price it is hard to beat.

I've got to say. I never really care for the look of most resin pens. I'm kinda a simple guy and a lot of pens are too loud for me. This one however is in a very sweet spot. Great looking pen! enjoy it!

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.
