This morning I worked a little bit on the Feed.
The feed was Rhodium plated and then 10 microns gold plated. The Rhodium seals the Bronze before Gold plating. If Copper alloys like Bronze and Brass are not pre-plated with Palladium, the Gold would fuse with and will be absorbed by the Bronze within short time. Ink flow is great, the feed took the ink within a fraction of a second
