    Default Parker 65 tools

    Hello, first post here [waves], though I've enjoyed reading various threads over the past few weeks.

    I have a small collection of Parker pens and haver done some work on a few UK Duofolds and am now looking to clean up a Parker 65 or two, but I understand that I will need special tools to remove the collector. Does anyone know where I can get them? I am in Wales, by the way.

    I made mine. Drilled the holes in the middle on the lathe. Cut the ends to the appropriate shape with a Dremel and a metal cutoff wheel. I used a tap to cut threads on the end. Made one knob out of acrylic, bought the other at a hardware store. Just ordinary steel IIRC. It's been over a decade.

    Thanks for the replies and the welcome. Alas, making my own tools is way beyond my capabilities but I shall try Laurence Oldfield. Thanks for the suggestion.
