Metal Burnishers

For the ultimate specialized burnisher, see our Parker 51 tool kit for removing dents from 51 caps. Look under "Vintage Pens" / "Parker by Model" / "Parker Tooling".

ITEM #D16: A COMBINATION NIB BURNISHING BLOCK AND KNOCK-OUT BLOCK WHICH INCLUDES A HOLLOW PUNCH FOR THE KNOCK-OUT BLOCK.    The burnishing block consists of 2 sets of both concave and convex channels (troughs and long humps) 4 1/8" (105mm) long, covering diameters ranging continuously from .160" (4.06mm) to .5" (12.7mm). I started out designing this burnishing block by measuring all the diameters and lengths of the troughs in 5 different vintage nib blocks obtained from Parker and Barrett surplus tooling plus one block owned by a fellow vintage pen tool collector in Europe. I made sure this block covered all contours contained on those blocks as defined by the diameters and lengths of those vintage blocks. If your metallurgical instincts are questioning the suitable hardness of aluminum for a burnishing application, this block is made from heat treated aluminum alloy 6061-T6 and it measured 85.2 on the Rockwell HR-15-T scale when tested. The vintage mild steel burnishing blocks found in the old pen factories measured 10 on the Rockwell HRC scale.

The knock-out block holes range from 3/16" (4.7mm) to " (12.7mm). The hollow punch (included) is designed to fit over every Sheaffer, Parker, and Eversharp fill tube I could find. The fill tube is a thin tube projecting from the back of the feed which would be destroyed by a solid punch when using a knock-out block. Knock-out blocks found in early Parker tool kits used these hollow punches.

ITEM #4365: NIB BURNISHING BLOCK.  Purchased from a former Parker Employee. This block contains 8 tapered concave troughs for burnishing different sized nibs by laying the nib down in the trough with a radius matching that of the nib and using the burnishing tool of your choice to smooth and contour the nib. The radii of the troughs range from .120" to .240". As stated above, the troughs are not uniform radii going across the block. Rather, they are each tapered, increasing or decreasing in radius as you go across the block. The manufacture of this configuration is very resource intensive, so they are very uncommon. This block is fabricated from steel, having (8) nib troughs with circular radii and (1) trough with a right angle cross section (second from the right). The block is .975" X 1.44" in cross section and has "7 18 17" stamped on one end.

ITEM #BURN VARIABLE: METAL BURNISHING TOOL WITH VARIABLE SHAPE.  This tool has a variably shaped tip depending on how it is rotated. This makes it useful for removing various sizes and shapes of dings out of metal pen barrels, caps, and nibs. It provides best results when the work is placed between it and a curved surface representing the desired curvature. This is my favorite, most used tool. . Made from very rigid metal, very difficult to bend.
