Missing Pawl

When I got my Golding Official No.4 (6” x 9”), its pawl to move the ink disk was missing. The rod to hold it was broken at the anchor hole, so I have that as a reference point, but if someone who has a similar press could send me pictures, and possibly measurements on how long it needs to be, that would be a huge help.

Thanks in advance!

*edit I have taken note on proper terms and stopped using the term ‘ink dog’.

We restored an Official #4 about a year ago.

Here are some quick pictures of the ink disk mechanism. I’m happy to take some more detailed measurements if you want to send me what you need.

Thank you very much, I think these will be a huge help, I will post my replacement once I have made it.

We replicated this Pawl last winter. Recast in bronze. Send me a note if you wish to purchase one. We also currently have O.S. Kelsey Pawls.
