The joys of cleaning fountain pens

Actually, the joys of cleaning the nibs of pens that are cartridge/converter pens. What if you had a cartridge in that pen...for at least a year and let it sit and dry out! EEEEEK! Instead of soaking the nib forever in a cup of water, use a little ear syringe or an ink syringe (whichever works best for the pen you're working with). This is what I learned from Brian Goulet, and I've been working on several pens this evening!

More to do in a couple more days (when I have free counter space for more.
