ITEM #GOOEY CUBE: THE MOST NON-SKID, STICKY, SEMI-RIGID SURFACE I'VE FOUND IN MY 27 YEARS OF PEN REPAIR. These are great for at least two things in our avocation:

1) Turning-out Parker jewels (clip screws). Click to read more...

2) Un-clogging buffer sticks and other abrasive tools such as tiny sanding drums. You can do this over and over. The use of Gooey Cubes can increase the useful life of abrasives by as much as 5 times.

ITEM #SHIM STOCK:  USED FOR GENTLY SPREADING NIB TINES FARTHER APART TO CHANGE INK FLOW AND ALSO CLEAN THE SLOT. I know this is not an abrasive, but it is showing up on this page because of the nib relevance brought about by the above items. And by the way, for you automotive enthusiasts out there, you do not leave the shim in the nib when you are done as in an automotive bearing adjusting application. Handle these with care as they have sharp edges. Wear gloves and/or finger cots when using. A set comes with a 1/2" x 3" piece of each of the following thicknesses: .001", .002", .003". .004", & .005". Rust proof stainless steel. Stronger and longer lasting than brass.
