Specialized Pliers

ITEM #PTS6: NIB-FEED PLIERS. FOR PULLING OUT STUBBORN NIB/FEED COMBINATIONS FROM THE SECTIONS OF FOUNTAIN PENS. Based on tools found in tool crib surplus from the Parker factory in Janesville, these have been re-designed, in-house, to allow the handles to close more completely and thus be a more natural fit for your hand. They also now come with a second, larger diameter jaw adapter to accommodate larger diameter nibs. The pre-installed, rubber padded jaw adapter has a 3/8" diameter hole to interface with the nib. The extra padded adapter has a .5" diameter. The adapters are installed with a 2 mm allen wrench. These pliers are 6 1/2" in their largest dimension.

One should make sure the nib/feed/section has been soaked a few minutes, preferably in an ultrasonic cleaner, to make things a little more prone to slide out. A little heat to make things more flexible and resistant to cracking is also recommended. Waving and rotating the front of the pen in a 200 degree Farenheit airflow for a few minutes is recommended. Once again, DON'T USE A HEAT GUN!!! They can ruin a pen in a matter of seconds!

ITEM #NIBPLIERS: NIB WORKING PLIERS. I've tried for years with no luck to find a current manufacturer that makes the tiny nib pliers with no serrations on the inside of the jaws similar to the pliers found in old Parker pen repairman's tool kits. One of my suppliers used to make them, but no more. So I made my own. The picture below makes these look bigger than they are. Keep in mind that these have a total length of 3". These are very popular at pen shows. I usually sell-out.

ITEM #HMST:  HEMOSTATS, 5" & 7". Locking clamping devices for reaching down into barrels and grabbing onto lever mechanisms, pressure bars/J-bars, etc. Use these for strong grabbing and heavy pulling rather than the more delicate, lighter work load alligator clamps shown below. The 5" size is also available with curved jaws. Specify size & curvature (straight or curved - the 7" size is only available straight).

$7 (5"), $9 (7")

hemostats

CURVED 5" SIZE SHOWN BELOW:

HEMOSTATS - CURVED and STRAIGHT

To buy please email Pentooling.

 Alligator clamps. These are very useful for reaching into barrels when working on levers & pressure bar assemblies. Unlike hemostats and pliers, the extension between the handles and the jaws does not expand, so you can reach further into narrower openings. While using these, think of them as forceps, not Channel Locks. These are delicate instruments and can be damaged with mis-use. If you want to pull-out j-bars, use a hemostat (see above, ITEM: HMST). These are more suited to removing sac remnants and assembling lever / pressure bar installations inside barrels.

ITEM #PT32867:  Reinforced barrel pliers with a second extra tough layer of soft plastic added to the business end for longer lasting useable life. There are also re-liners available for these or other sourced similar pliers if the liners become torn. These are for safely grabbing onto barrels and 51 hoods. For the latter application, 2 pair are better. 8 1/4" long.

PLIERS $15, re-liner pads $2 pair

barrel pliers

To install the re-liners:

These shrink over the jaws when heated, conforming to the shape of the jaws.  Slip them over the jaws of the pliers to the position you want them in and then close the pliers and  hold them in front of a heat gun (a hair dryer may be warm enough) or wave the ends of the pliers with the new liners on them over a gas flame (a BIC lighter will work).  Make sure they are in the position you want them to be in before applying heat, because once it shrinks, it won't move.  After they shrink enough to remain on the jaws, open the jaws and roll them around in the heat to get all sides to shrink.  Use your head and don't hold these stationary over a flame.  They can and will burn and start on fire if you don't keep them moving.  Very quickly after they shrink, while they are still hot, squeeze a pencil between the jaws.  this will leave a curved slot in the newly re-lined jaws. 

To buy please email Pentooling.

ITEM #HE-MAN: HEAVY DUTY BARREL & SECTION PLIERS. This is another obsolete item I've brought back into production after finding them in old time pen repairmen's tool kits and then finding out that nobody made them anymore. Now they are back, much more comfortable, durable, and suited for high resolution work than the less expensive stamped-out sheet metal versions. Optimally sized for most pen barrels and 6 3/4" long. In addition to gripping/turning cylindrically shaped objects, these are the only tool I've found that I can use to remove the tiered or tapered jewels from the top of the caps of Parker 75s, 45s, and similar pens without tearing the plating up. Underneath the rubber sleves there are no serrations or teeth in the jaws.
