Hello, Everyone.

I have an old Everfeed plunger filler that I would like to restore.  It appears to be a very simple design.  But....where can I find a gasket/seal for it?  Any ideas?  I understand that it's a cheap pen, generally considered "not worth restoring".  However, the pen belonged to my grandfather who was killed in WWII crossing the Rhine.  I would like very much to restore it and use it.  My father gave it to me in a box of old letters, medals, etc. that were my grandfathers.  I think it would be really cool to restore it and write my dad a note using the pen.  

 

In the box were also three other pens:  An Arnold brand lever filler, a Wearever Zenith lever filler and an Inkograph lever filler.  I have cleaned and resacked those three pens, so the Everfeed is the last one to tackle.  Any help or direction would be appreciated.  Thanks.

I will cut you one and send it to you. You can give me a close measurement, I will cut a bit oversize and you can sand it to fit. Just send me the measurement and an address.

Thank you, Spacecoastpenny.  Very kind of you.

 

I will give you what measurements I can.  The original seal is falling to pieces.  It appears to be a cup shape.

 

OD: .329" on the dial caliper

OD of the shaft it fits on:  .171"

OD of shaft head: .224"

 

Here is a picture of the seal/plunger assembly

 

I'll PM you the address.

.236 is the inside diameter of the barrel where the plunger "handle" protrudes.   The inner diameter of the barrel where the nib section presses in is .336 inches.  I cannot get any deeper into the barrel than that, as I don't have the correct measuring device.
