Back again today with another question.
I’m gearing up to start pen-turning (done a lot of reading re what I’ll need), and think I’ve got a decent handle on getting started. My problem is this: I can’t find fountain pen kits on woodcraft or rockler that actually tell you the nib tip size. They tell you the nib size number (usually #5 or #6), but this is the measurement of length, not the size of the tip. My wife is pretty particular, and her favorite setup is a rounded broad tip pen.
Any of the more experienced pen turners here have any suggestions, or even just a good place to order from that provides that info?
