The invention relates to a hooded type feed
bar for ‘pens and more particularly to a cooper
ating hood and feed bar for writing pens.
Objects of the invention are to facilitate proper
alignment of the feed bar in the hood, to increase
the capacity of the hood andfeed bar to retain
ink, and to provide a combined feed bar and hood
having an opening for the escape of air to pre

which terminate slightly belowthe axis of the
feed/bar as indicated by the line 9 in Fig, 3.
Below the bottom of the comb ‘land 8 and longi
, tudinally extending at the bottom of the feed
bar, is a web 10 having sides which are substan

in an upward direction by a slight angle such as
1‘/2° to temporarily retain the lower half of feed
vent the pen from flooding.
These objects are accomplished by employing ~10 bar in ‘the mold section in which it is cast, as

Referring in detail to the drawing, the‘ pen

The pen assembly I is here shown as having

position, the ‘web 10 at its front end extends

If the hood is loaded with ink, in the absence
of slot l2, an increase in air pressure for any
end of the feed bar project.
The feed bar 3 at opposite sides thereof has 55 reason at the rear end of the feed bar would
cause the ink to ?ood. from the front end of the
feed bar. This is avoided or reduced according
to the present invention, as such increase in air
pressure is relieved through the openings l5 and
It; for the reason that while a, capillary ?lm of
ink may exist at those openings, the air pressure
would have less work to do in breaking those ?lms
and escaping through openings l5 and I6 than
it would in pushing a body of ink beyond the front
end of the feed bar.
The sides of the web l0 and the sides of the
slot 12 cooperate to provide the capillary open

to retain ink in the hood 2.
