Attach a rubber coupling to the large end of one of your No. 4 nozzles, close the other end of the coupling with a glass plug, and your fountain-pen filler is made (Fig. 67).

To make the plug, close one end of a piece of No. 4 tubing, allow it to cool, cut off to a length of 1 inch and smooth the rough edges. Insert the closed end of this plug into the rubber coupling.

Practice using the filler by drawing up and shooting out water.
