Help! How do I restore this pen?

Recommended Posts

I just impulsively got my first vintage pen, as well as my first pen needing restoration, at an antique store a few hours ago. But, I have absolutely no clue how to restore it. When I opened it, the sac was absolutely dust and the metal pressure bar fell out in two pieces. I expected the sac to be destroyed, but not the pressure bar! So, could anyone please make a step-by-step instructions for how to restore it, as well as what I will need and where to buy it? It would be much appreciated! Thank you!

Oh, and here are some pictures of it, and one comparing it to a Kaweco.

you could start there WRT to the jbar.

 

I have no personal experience with replacing jbars, sorry.

Thank you, this was really helpful. From what it seems like, I will need a 40mm J-bar (may be a tad too big, but it will do), a size 12 ink sac, shellac, talc, and hemostat.

Glad you found it helpful

 

 good luck. It’s a cute little pen

Just give me the Parker 51s and nobody needs to get hurt.

and if the Jbar is too long you can size it down to the lenght you need with a Dremel or similar, I did it for one of my pens.

I notice that the pen has a lever on the side, so why whould you need a J bar ? If the lever mechanism works fine then you do not nee a J bar, but I might be wrong.

Well, I think you would need one. It also came with a corroded j-bar so I assume the manufacturer intended it to have a j-bar.
