Honestly spoken I have no clue if things will work out.
The weight of the feed is 9 gr.
The reason for a metal feed is that I have seen many Ebonite feeds with broken comb.
Since it is a copper alloy I havee to make a barriere with Palladium coating and Gold or Rhodium coating.

The pitch I use is Matsuyani a pitch used by Japanese metal workers. Pine Rosin mixed with a fine Clay Powder. I fixed the nib in the Pitch tu grind/smoothen the inside of thee nib
