How do I get a Ranga nib out?


MrsDanvers

Recommended Posts

Apologies in advance if I am posting this in the wrong place. I just received a Ranga pen and it won't write due to the nib being very wobbly and not touching the feed. Can i just pull the nib out and reseat it or is this a no? It's a Ranga Abhimanyu with an Indian flex nib. Any help would be most welcome.

I think you should pull out the feed and nib together, fit the nib over the feed correctly, then push back in. You should be able to turn them a little as well, I think. On my Abhimanyus the nib is not as far out over the nib as it is on yours, so I think it can be fitted with just a small part of the nib sticking out beyond the feed.

Congratulations, these are lovely pens. I have two, with the same ultra flex nib. They are a joy to use.

Thank you so much for your help. I've managed to pull the nib and feed out, it was a real struggle, but i now have a working pen! 

It is a lovely pen, I can't believe how different ebonite feels from acrylic, it's much warmer in the hand. I look forward to writing with it now. Thanks again!

Glad I was able to help. Enjoy your pens! as I said, they're very nice to write with.

      I have the Sailor Naginata and some fancy blade nibs coming after 2022 by a number of new workshop from China.  With all my respect, IMHO, they are all (bleep) in doing chinese characters.  Go use a bush, or at least a bush pen.

      It is the reason why I'm so keen on the idea of a personal library — of pens, nibs, inks, paper products, etc. — and spent so much money, as well as time and effort, to “build” it for myself (because I can't simply remember everything, especially as I'm getting older fast) and my wife, so that we can “know”; and, instead of just disposing of what displeased us, or even just not good enough to be “given the time of day” against competition from >500 other pens and >500 other inks for our at

      Agreed.  And I think it’s good to be aware of this early on and think about at the point of buying rather than rationalizing a purchase..

      Alas, one cannot know “good” without some idea of “bad” against which to contrast; and, as one of my former bosses (back when I was in my twenties) used to say, “on the scale of good to bad…”, it's a spectrum, not a dichotomy. Whereas subjectively acceptable (or tolerable) and unacceptable may well be a dichotomy to someone, and finding whether the threshold or cusp between them lies takes experiencing many degrees of less-than-ideal, especially if the decision is somehow influenced by factors o

      I got my first real fountain pen on my 60th birthday and many hundreds of pens later I’ve often thought of what I should’ve known in the beginning. I have many pens, the majority of which have some objectionable feature. If they are too delicate, or can’t be posted, or they are too precious to face losing , still they are users, but only in very limited environments..  I have a big disliking for pens that have the cap jump into the air and fly off. I object to Pens that dry out, or leave blobs o
