How To Swap Nibs

This part is really easy. For two different examples, I'll take the Edison Collier, which takes the whole nib & feed unit, and the Jinhao x450, which takes the nib only.

For the Edison Collier, and other pens that accept the whole nib & feed unit: Simply unscrew the unit from the section. You will have to remove your converter from the barrel. Insert the Franklin-Christoph music nib unit by screwing it in place. No need to wrench it in, just finger tight will do.

For the Jinhao x450, and other pens that only take the nib of the Franklin-Christoph music nib unit: Separate the Franklin-Christoph music nib unit by gripping the nib and feed (use grippy material
if necessary) and pulling them straight out of the nib collar.

Separate the Jinhao x450 nib and feed by doing the same thing. If either are encrusted with ink, it'll be difficult, so make sure they're nice and clean.

All you need to do is align the Franklin-Christoph music nib on the other feed and replace it in the section.

Easy peasy to do yourself. Now, I haven't tested the actual flow of these, so I can't tell you how well they'll write, but this is what I have that fits!
