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.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.
