Custom designed housing to allow a stock Platinum 3776 nib and feed to be used in a Bock #6 fountain pen. Shown here is a Conid fountain pen with the 3776 nib and feed installed.
Here’s an example custom feed and collar design requested by a customer, a Visconti Dreamtouch 23k Palladium nib in a Pelikan M800.
Bock #6 nib assembly in clear cast acrylic is complete. This one has a steel Bexley nib.
I’m also reverse engineering a Bock #6 with a titanium nib borrowed from Newton Pens. The feed design is different because the nib has a different curvature than the steel Bock nib. The housing is also a little different, but it still fits existing pens that accept Bock #6 steel nibs.
Each day, with the help of my son, I’m able to work about an or so. We’ve made prototypes in acrylic of Bock #6 feeds and housings. The housing is more or less complete; the feed still needs tweaking to fit Bock #6 nibs.
I’m finally well enough to spend an hour or so a day in the factory, with help from my son to operate the Mazak QTU-200MSY live tooled lathe. These are production ready prototypes of JoWo #6 feed and housing in clear acrylic. I will tweak feeds and speeds to make the housing more transparent before offering these for sale. This one has a steel Goulet Pens nib in it.
I’ll be sending out some invitations to some of my Instagram followers tomorrow to participate in beta testing my new 743 FA ebonite feed.
This is a replacement ebonite feed for the excellent Pilot 743 pen, in particular, to support the full flexibility of the FA nib, shown below. This feed will become a standard product, along with the slightly smaller 742 feed, in black and red Nikko ebonite. I’m still tweaking the design, but it should be ready for beta testers by next week.
