Japanese style Eyedropper with Platinum Music nib?

Does anyone know if there is a way short of doing all the manufacturing yourself to get a Platinum Music nib into a Japanese style eyedropper? I'm wondering if someone makes a pen that would fit it or the like?

I have a 1950s stainless steel Platinum MUSIC nib fitted to a vintage 1920s American Waterman clone. Took awhile until I find a section of the right size for the nib. Writes great.

Some Ban-ei ED pens commissioned by Dani trio used Platinum nibs.

Perhaps if you got hold of the correct Ban-ei, an old style Platinum music nib might be a straight swap. You can even ask Bruno Taut if the old 3776 nibs and Ban ei nibs are the same size. 

 

Good luck!

another option is Opus 88. I believe they use JoWo nib units (Pls confirm this).

Flexible nib factory in the USA makes JoWo housings to accept Platinum nibs and feeds. So you buy the Opus 88 plus the correct FNF housing and you are in the game.

      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.

      That looks pretty good. You might want to add wood as a material (with its weakness of staining) and mention urushi. And under ergonomic considerations, the size of section (slender pens vs chunky pens), and shape of section, and 'disturbances' such as the Lamy 2000 'ears' and Pilot Capless clip getting in the way might be worth mentioning. Also possibly a general section on things you can do yourself with a bit of care, with a bit of practice, and things that are strictly "don't try this a
