Hi all,
A very good customer of mine asked for some Bock Calligraphy nibs to retrofit a couple of fountain pens (an Emperor and a Statesman) he purchased some time ago from me. I initially used his own sets of housing/feeder but I found out that Calligraphy nibs work better with fresh housing/feeder sets.
For the moment I already cannibalized a Gentleman but I can't ruin other such expensive Dayacom kits.
I tried to purchase some sets of housing/feeder from a vendor but with no success.
Does somebody have for sale at least a couple (maybe more?) of Dayacom Nr6 housing/feeder (no nib needed but I'm open to any suggestion), to fit Bock 250 Calligraphy nibs in a Statesman and Emperor?
Thanks in advance.
Christos.

Christos, Jowo makes Dayacom's nibs/feeds/housings. Here's a Jowo #6 next to the assembly removed from a Jr. Aaron kit:

And the Jowo threads right in easily without any issues:

I've ordered my Jowos from here. You may even be able to contact them and see if they can sell you just the housing and feed. And you can buy a whole assembly to replace the one(s) you already cannibalized from another Dayacom kit. The housing/feed will be a direct screw in replacement for the one in the Dayacom kits. I have used #6 sized Bock nibs in Jowo housings and feeds a couple times without issue. So as long as the nib your wanting to swap in is a #6 size, it should fit in there and work just fine.
