Default Button filler

Hello all. Does anyone know where one can purchase parts for button filling pens? Specifically the actual button. I plan on using them in an attempt to make a button filler kit less pen.

You could try Richard Greenwald or Milan's Pen & Parts

I've had good service from both of them.

you are going to need much more then just the buttons , they can be turned from aluminum bar stock . you are going to need pressure bars and sacks and sack shellac and if you want your pen to fill fully breather tubes . most of the parts are available from places like fountain pen hospital and other fountain pen repair houses .

When I made a button filler for a customer, I got the sac, pressure bar, and shellac from Richard Greenwald's website. He doesn't carry the buttons himself, so I made one from bronze bar stock.
