Price: 29.99
For those of you how wish to repair your damaged nib, here is the essential tool.
Nibs that are bent, twisted or sprung can all be repaired on the block.

Important note, this block is only for the repair of the standard open nib, NOT CONE and CIRCULAR NIBS. e.g. Sheaffer Triumphs, Parker "51" or similar type nibs.

The block is produced from Acrylic and has Concave and Convex areas for working both underside and top faces of the nib.
The Convex portion of the block has a slight concave curve.
The available area on both surfaces will enable nibs of all sizes to be worked on.


Nibs are repaired using Burnishers, these tools are used by Jewellers, and decorative precious metal workers.
Many repairers make there own burnishers from metal rods with the end ground round and polished smooth.
The Agate burnisher is often used when a gold nib is to be repaired.
There are times when you can use a ball bearing, making sure its the correct size for the nib.

Be aware that over burnishing will result in the metal of the nib hardening and may even become brittle and crack.

Alway make sure that the block is firm to your work surface to prevent slipping while working.
Resting against a stop bar, or on a non slip surface.

Remember, don't just jump in and start repairing your solid gold vintage nib, practice first with an old nib. 
The amount of pressure used to achieve the finished result, will vary depending on the type, material and size of the nib.
It will take time and effort to repair a nib, practice and patience is essential in achieving the end result.

The block measures 4.5 in x 2 in ( 11.5 cm x 5 cm )
