So shall we be held the only real nut available who loves the Rapidograph? I found love them within the late 70s. I have heard there are now technical pens that have simpler to make use of refills, etc. Does anybody have preferences concerning the newer technical pens?
What’s the phrase a technical pen? Something for drafting?
technical pen – definition
Sorry about this. Yes, In my opinion they’re regarded as drafting pens, even though it was a painter friend who got me into this specific addicition. A great description of the rapidograph are available Here
I love my pens to create thin lines. I might have to check individuals out. Thanks!
Within my somewhat dated experience, most technical pens were created to become held nearly vertical for drawing. Unsure if you would discover that comfortable. Possibly the newer pens are created to be write well in an position. I have seen some fiber-tip pens designed to write like technical pens, plus they could most likely take place in a normal pen position.
Remember, wherever you decide to go, bam !.
You may have luck searching around for vintage stylographic pens. Individuals were created for writing, instead of technical drawing.
They produce super wrinkles
They produce super wrinkles. I’ve one – a Rotring rapidograph .35 – which i washed a classic cartridge for and full of fountain pen ink. Works each time, never skips, etc. Excellent for that finest of lines. (It’s full of red ink and that i sometimes apply it editing.)
What make of ink have you use within your rapidograph?
J Herbin, maybe?
I do not really remember, however i put red inside it and I haven’t got that lots of red inks, therefore it is most likely either J Herbin’s Rose Opera or Diamine’s Claret. I in addition have a handful of Noodler’s (Ottoman Rose is really a favorite), but I am confident I did not put any Noodler’s inside it. I’d believe that worthwhile fountain pen ink works (though a few of the Noodler’s Eternals could be a touch picky).
The awesome factor is the fact that it has been several weeks since i have did this also it still writes very first time whenever I get it. I ought to note, though, it appeared to consider forever to wash the cart out because it absolutely was sitting for a long time. I finished up getting to utilize a syringe to obtain all of the old ink out.
Noddler’s very acidic
I had been in Montreal yesterday and that i reached speaking to Robert Culmer of los angeles Maison du Stylo (among the best pen shops in the world, opened up because the 1940s) and that he was shocked that anybody could be using Noodler’s in fountain pens. It’s very acidic and informs me he’s stoped counting the amount of feeders and sceals he’s needed to replace on fountain pens that were full of Noodler’s. To him (and he’s been carrying this out for 50+ years) the very best ink for fountain pens is Quink by Parker since it is more liquid and fewer acidic than the majority of the other inks available. The second best is Waterman’s, that’s less liquid, but non-acidic.
the seem of the million hearts breaking
That would be ideal info. perhaps you should begin a thread simply with that info within the pen forum 🙂
I am for each other. having a pen
If you want wrinkles, look at this. I acquired a .05, however they have a .03. Never imagined I’d say this, however i think the .03 may be too acceptable for me!
I’ve a skill group of
I’ve a skill group of Micron’s like this. I simply have a problem using art pens for non-artsy purposes >.< Maybe I should get a second set 😀
Would you use black?
pens – ah wonderful pens
Well, it’s apparent that you’ll require another set for non-art purposes 🙂 I have several the Micron pens with colors which i use. I favor (as pens) the Staedtler drawing pens, but I have only found them in black. And That I such as these Copics much more, however i know they are only produced in black. I personally use different colored index cards for various purposes, so I am awesome with getting only black and white. Although, now you bring it up. )
