The letter came from the Senior Property Management who I have never met, but has an office in the building. Do you have any suggestions, for building them or experimenting? I just said that in all the years that I’ve done drum scans, I never would have thought of using it. Main purpose is to write some music on travels without having to constantly pack up my real headphones (been using Beyerdynamic DT880 600 ohm for many years now). I have lived in an apartment complex for almost a decade, and some of the residents have lived there since the 70s. I have had a hanging-door combination lockbox on my door for emergencies for the past 5 years. Some even have nails in their doors to hang things. It’s very likely that the glue will leave a nasty hard residue around the edge of the shell, even damage or chip it when you open it up. Wipe the remaining olive oil off your hair with a washcloth, so you can see how much residue is left.
When left overnight the left over ink may be more saturated because the lighter ink has been used up. That’s when a Section has to be left submersed for at least 24 hours. At the time, they realised that there really wasn’t another way, at least not according to the laws of this world, and continued with their day, but that’s another story. Shipping takes at least a month so I’ll report back. Quickly invert the pen and invert it back. If you do see an air bubble then shake the pen 180 degrees until the air bubble rises to the top and the ink flows to the bottom. If there is no air bubble between the feed, the bottom of the Cartridge or Converter, and there is no big amount of ink sticking to the top of Cartridge or Converter, then it may be a flow problem, in which case you may need to re-set the Nib a few times, or bend the nib tip slightly, to get a wetter line.
Is there an air bubble between the ink floating at the top of the Cartridge or Converter? Briskly shake in up and down in 180 degree motions, to break any air bubble and get the ink flowing. If you switch to a light ink, a higher flowing ink, and the feed channels are clogged with the saturated ink residue the free flowing ink won’t be free flowing. After I had removed any unwanted imperfections, I used brake cleaner & shop towels to remove any residue. Removing the installed foam is quite messy because it will leave residue on the speaker which is hard to remove and it can get into the holes and alter the sound, then stick into the tuning foam on the vents. I’m not sure how your chosen 600ohm speaker looks like, but if it has preinstalled foam on it, then it’s likely that you don’t have to use additional tuning foam on the vents, maybe you can play around with thin tape, or replace the installed foam with a different one.
I just have to fill it twice as often. I’ll probably pull apart a cotton pad and just fill the shell with that, trying different ammounts of course. I’m sure there is no magic going on there but maybe the shell is nice and I can transplant that driver into one of the cheap RY4S shells. I don’t recommend using shells from existing earphones, especially from RY4S, because they are glued heavily and it’s very hard to open them up. I find pens with Schmidt or Bock feeds are wet writers. You just need to experiment more to find the attachment and maintenance procedures that work best for you. If the nib is real hard to remove and real hard to re-install the fit is too tight and the pen tends to dry out more. You’ll want to re-seat it about two times when the pen is clean and not inked up.
If you can’t get your finger nail in the back and pull the nib forward, there are two different methods using Scotch Tape to remove it. By the same token, if you remove the nib, look at the underside of the nib. I had that kind of foiled tpe cable, it’s ok but you can buy much better ones for about the same price. It’s much better to buy a set of mx500 shells, you get very nice matching tunings foams with them as well. I would suggest to buy some cheap speakers as well to practice with the tuning, if you adjust the build a lot it’s very easy to damage the speakers or wear out the front cover (the snapping will get loose and it will introduce channel imbalances if you dont glue it down), then you have to wait a lot for the next shipment to arrive.
