ITEM #HANGING PRES BAR - 3 SIZES: HANGING 3 PIECE PRESSURE BAR FOR PARKER BUTTON FILLERS.  These are reproductions of all three sizes of Parker's hanging pressure bars for its button fillers. The sizes of pressure bars that a given size of pen uses overlaps a great deal. The medium size fits a wide range of fountain pen sizes from Duofold Seniors to small sized Challengers and it was the only size supplied to Parker's repair people in the end. See the second photo below; the numbers on the pens indicate the volume of ink taken in by the pen shown with the medium pressure bar in it. All these are quite riteous volumes of ink for the given pen.

For these pressure bars to work, you'll need to be able to pass a No. 12 drill through the hole in the top of the barrel to clean it out and adjust for any shrinkage and crud build up that has occurred over the ages (I find this to be required even when re-using an original Parker 3 piece pressure bar). This type of pressure bar frequently results in less force being required when pushing the fill button down, which greatly alleviates the chances of an accident with an open ink bottle. The drill shown at the bottom of the photo is a no. 12 and is shown as the next item in these listings. These bars won't work in Pastels; there's not enough diameter under the barrel collar for a 3 piece pressure bar to expand in a Pastel.

The sizes are shown in the first photo below, and as pointed out above, there is quite an overlap in the sizes that will fit a given size pen. Just try to get the length from the top of the button to the section of the pen and don't exceed it with the pressure bar length.

When ordering, specify the size you want as "BAR A", "BAR B" OR "BAR C".

ITEM #BAR E OR BAR L - STRAIGHT 2 PIECE PRESSURE BARS FOR PARKER BUTTON FILLERS.   Long and medium sizes are available as shown in the photo. Stainless steel. SPECIFY THE LENGTH DESIRED WHEN ORDERING.

Note: The last photo below illustrates a neat trick taught to me by the late, great Frank Dubiel. It involves lengthening straight pressure bars with a piece of insulation off of a pioece of 12 gage electrical wire. The top end of the pressure bar fits into the piece of insulation which then fits into a Parker button. You then have a longer pressure bar. A piece of a hollow Q-Tip handle also works if you can find one.

Note (again): These pressure bars can also be shortened a small amount by removing a small amount of the bottom end, making sure there are no sharp edges on it after you cut it. A file works well here. Also make sure you don't take so much off that it no longer flexes on the bottom end.

When ordering, specify the size you want as "BAR D", "BAR E" OR "BAR L".
