Hehe -- the people you normally would ask for this piece do know how
it looks like, but perhaps you are lucky finding someone rebuilding it
from a picture in the web site.  ;-))

Now, I could get this piece for you, but I have no idea about the
present price.  What do you want: an original bar, or a remake?

P.S.: While talking about mechanical music terms: "pressure bar" sounds
a little strange to my ears, as I would associate "air pressure", but
there is no air-pressure at that point of the instrument.  The German
expression is "Buegel", yet the translation isn't that easy, as "bow"
has too many different meanings and "handle" is more likely to be
associated with the handle of the crank.

 [ In this case "bar" is a metal piece, not the unit of atmospheric
 [ pressure. ;)  It applies force to keep the disc in contact with
 [ the star wheels.  I find "der Buegel" in my big translating
 [ dictionary, which says its sort of a general-purpose word for
 [ metal devices like a (coat-)hanger, frame, clip, handle, pantograph,
 [ or (trigger-)guard.  -- Robbie
