    You could also make nibs the really old fashioned way:

    I have pretty much all the kit necessary (including slitting saws of the right size, presses etc, and still have little desire to try to make my own nibs, even though it's an interesting process. The tipping would be a problem - I don't have a welding setup (though I know a man who does...) but the actual material is pretty specialised as well, and would be of no use to me for anything else.

    I'll stick to what I enjoy, which is being able to repair/modify them.

    Kudos to those that make them from scratch.

    Crikey - I thought my slitting saw setup was terrifying until I saw that - and he carries on with the grinder on the other side with that thing just inches away from his bare arm. I'd have to book a season ticket at A&E!

    Wonderful craftsmanship with the bare minimum of equipment.
