I am currently working on a 2nd Generation Waterman Skywriter and wondered what does the Pressure Bar for this pen look like as it came to me missing the Pressure Bar?

 

Thank You, Derrick

I've just looked at my Skywriter (which is an early one, 1930's) and it looks like the pressure bar is a simple "J" bar. The lever is held in place with a "C" ring, not surprising as Skywriter was Waterman's bargain brand. Great flex nibs on some of them though.

I used to get mine from Martin Smith at Woodbin, but sad to say he died early this year. I believe Pentooling has them though.

 

BTW if you live in the Toronto area, come by my table at Scriptus (The Toronto Pen Show) on Oct. 28th and say "Hi".
