In all three of my classes (Nottingham, Lincoln and Newark) this week I've been talking about ways to rescue a nib that isn't behaving, as most problems can be sorted if you know what to do.
However my teaching didn't stretch to what to do when your pointed nib falls off the table onto a tiled floor....
That nib and I have been through a lot together too :0(
(Confession - I rarely manage to throw a nib away, so it'll go and join all the other nibs that are beyond repair and have been "put out to pasture" !)
