    oh, ok, it is not the needle hitting, it is the threads on the handle hitting the spring retainer. Your option is to clip a coil or so off the spring, or look in every pen you can find to locate a softer one :).

    Yep that makes me nervous as well. The beeswax I use is real soft and it only takes a touch of the flame. You don’t want to heat the metal.

    No need for any heat with chapstick.

    I used chapstick for years but with the beeswax it hardens back up so that it creates a better seal. All I know is it did the trick for me with all my brushes.
