Sorry to resurrect this old thread, by I need your help. I disassembled a Lamy profil 81 in fairly new condition to clean it and now I can't put it together again properly.

 

I've had the same problem with a brown profil 80, but there enough brute force and friction did the job: After unscrewing the barrel, it will not screw back on completely. Only using much force and rubber gloves helped with the 80.

With the 81, it helped a bit at first, but not enough, now after several trials the barrel wont even screw onto the section a tiny bit because it can't get a hold. The reason for this seems to be the rubber sealing ring you see on the the feed here, which prevents the barrel from screwing deeper into the section. When the ring is missing, everything screws together jus fine.

I tried everything I could to press the ring further back onto the feed, to no avail Then I tried to get the feed out with pincers, but I'm just damaging the feed and therefore don't want to try that again without knowing exactly what I am doing.

 

So please can anyone tell me how to get everthing back together correctly?

Hello Tigerfox,

 

I have had this issue with some older LAMY 27s, but not with the profil series. These pens are easy to take apart and back together. I would not use the pincers that is for sure. Are you sure the feed “clicks” right in the tine hole at the front of the section? Because once it does, the seal just easily slides in. Or, are you sure the seal is original? Please post some pictures ...

 

Kind regards,

Jan (FLICKR)

I have not disassembled nib, feed and section. The rubber sealing ring fell right out when I unscrewed the barrel. I will post pictures later.

Hello,

 

It all looks fine. No pieces are missing. The seal is original. I don´t really see what the problem might be. You mentioned that if the seal is not inserted, the parts fit together OK. Try to take the feed out, put the seal on, and see how the barrel fits. I will try to post some pictures soon ...

 

Kind regards,

Jan (FLICKR)

That is the problem, I don't know how to take the feed out and only seem to damage it by trying.

Hello,

 

taking the feed out is easy and there is a picture on page 1 of this thread regarding this. Pull (slide) the nib down, press the tine square of the feed and pull it out. I don´t have, unfortunately any "profil" pens here in Prague, but when I visit my parents, I will take some pictures and post them here ...

I saw those pics but I can't even slide the nib down. Is there a trick? Do I have to pull the nib at the tip with something like pincers or do I habe to push it down from the backside?

 

I just now realised: Are you the Jan whose Flickr-account is filled with valueable old LAMY-catalogues and high quality pictures of older and nwer Lamy and Montblanc? Thank you for that.

Hello Tigerfox,

 

Sorry for my late reply.

 

What you should do, is soak the whole feed into soapy water and keep in the water overnight. This should help release all the dried-up ink and the nib should be removed easily. There is no trick to this. There are “rails” on the sides, and the nib is inserted in these. Do not use pincers, it will damage the nib. The nib should slide from the feed. Just pull.

 

This is what I do, when the nib does not go down easily. But that is the “maximum force” I use. You could also use some grease:

If you are not lucky, you could send it to me, and would do it for you ...

 

And yes, that would be me with the Flickr account J Thank you ...

 

Kind regards,

Jan (FLICKR)

Sorry for the lare reply. I just figured it out. The seal wasn't from this LAMY 81 but from one of my 80. I think I cleaned and opened them together an didn't realize from which one the seal fell out.

 

I got the idea from looking at the feed of different old LAMYs and saw the 81 looked like all the others which had their seal in place.

 

I discovered something interesting while doing that: There are two types of Lamy Profil 80! I have one with an EF nib, which is like new, and another with an F nib with a cracked cap and many signs of use. The cap of the 81 fits the first one and vice versa, but not the used one. The cap of the used one is to narrow for the newer one and the 81. But the cap of the used one fits the both the as good as new black 86 and the very damaged brown 86 I own.

So there was a black 80 which was like the 81 and and another like the 86.

 

Plus as my collection grows I am still amazed how all the old Lamys (27, 99, Special and Ratio) are similiar but different in the details.
