Easterbrook nib positioning



Zookie

Recommended Posts

I just found my second Estie in the wild, a green model j. The nib, a 9550, looked black and appeared broken. I soaked it and cleaned it, now I find that it isn't broken, but the tip of the nib is the same as that of the feed. I'm new to Esterbrook pens, but this doesn't seem right. So is the feed out too far, or the nib in too far. I've changed a lot of nibs before and not afraid of the job,however, is there something different about this one? Should I leave it screwed into the section? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

If I’m reading your original post right, it sounds like the nib/feed were messed up. Ordering a replacement is probably your best bet. 9550s are great nibs, but not insanely expensive. With a new nib, a 16 sac, some shellac and some talc, you’ll be off to the races!

Got a photo?  I see nibs that have this issue occasionally.  And getting a replacement is the easiest remedy.
