Will A Sheaffer Converter With Push Bar Work In A Legacy 1?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I have recently obtained a beautiful Sheaffer Legacy 1 fountain pen. It has a gold plated converter with pliglass ink sac that works well with the Touchdown mechanism of the pen. I have looked upon the Internet to find an additional converter for the pen. The only converters that I found were open on the side and had a push bar to squeeze the ink sac. What I`d like to know is: do these work with the touchdown mechanism, too? And is it possible to disassemble such converters and replace the ink sac?

 

Greetings,

Steffi

"The only difference between the squeeze converters and the gold TD converters for the Legacy is the casing". ....straight from the mouth of a Sheaffer engineer. So yes, you can use the squeeze converter in your Legacy. A piston converter however will not work. It won't even fit.
