Default Omas pens question

Hello turners & craftspeople!

I am looking for info about Omas fountain pens. Specifically, I have a customer who owns and Omas that has a bent nib. Someone "straightened" the nib out for them and it does write, but it leaks. Not sure from where as I haven't actually looked at it nor have I ever seen an Omas pen. My question is:

Does anyone know if the Omas nib can be readily replaced?
If so, can it be replaced with "any old" nib or does it require something specific?

It might vary depending on which exact model you are dealing with.

Anyway -- Google is your friend, so long as you know a little about which results you can have some confidence in

Here's a thread from the Fountain Pen Network.

Another source of info/service/repair is Indy-Pen-Dance (use google search); talk to Linda

Don't ASK ... I might lie. Don't TELL me ... Iíll forget. But if you SHOW me I might remember; and if you INVOLVE me Iíll probably get it.
