The squeeze converter will have a sac. You might have to resac it. If you do get one and then if you resac it, I recommend you use a PVC sac. Unless you want to use it in a celluloid pen.

Lamy Squeeze converter is out of production...They were made around 1980 years... The sac was transparent made of a kind a plastic..no rubber...it looked like old Parker 51 sacs...

Yes, they are out of production, alas.

 

Does anyone know how I might find a used one?

 

Many thanks,

Alister

Curious..Why do you want it? It was very poor performance...Piston converter works better... :huh: ;)

Fair question!

 

I like Lamy, and I like different filling systems. So I'd like to have one of these converters, even though I am sure that the piston is better.

I understand...mine is silver finish and plastic sac was hard to squeeze so did not hold much ink... :roller1:

Hello!

 

The Lamy squeeze converter is the correct converter for very early production Lamy Safari fountain pens, and, although later Lamy converters should work in the early Safari pens, for some collectors, the early squeeze converter would be important.

 

The following two sources may be able to help you locate an early, Lamy squeeze converter:

 

Rolf Theil was at https://www.missing-pen.com/ but that doesn't seem to be working correctly. He is also active on eBay as "missing-pen." His email is: missing-pen@t-online.de or try sending him a message via eBay. I have had good service from him in the past.

Regina Martini at: https://www.martiniauctions.com/ I have also had very good service from Regina Martini.

 

They are excellent sources for German and other European writing instruments, including parts.

 

Good luck!

Regards, Robert

Alister, Robert, et al:

It was a pleasure to discover this thread because it relates to a Safari problem I have now. Around 1980 I bought a charcoal Safari fp which has a squeeze filler. It still writes beautifully and looks wonderful. My squeeze filler looks exactly like the 3rd (black) one in the picture of four fillers above.

 

Robert's remarks about this filler are on target. The filler does function in drawing in ink and never leaking but: (1) it's difficult to press and holds not much ink; and (2) it's opacity renders the ink window useless.

Alister, are you sure a squeeze filler will fit your Safari? I recently bought an additional, new Safari and installed a Z28 converter which snapped right in. This converter is not backward-compatible with my early Safari; the snapping sound of installation was two tiny "bosses" on the converter fitting into the rear of the nib segment of my new pen. No such slots exist in my old pen. The Z28, as is, would not fit. I have not dared remove my squeezer. I would greatly prefer to have a piston type converter (with greater capacity and viewable ink supply) but I don't know where to get one.

Regards, Charlie

Charlie, try a Lamy Z27 piston converter. It has a smooth barrel without the bosses/nubbins found on the Z28, so it will fit earlier Safaris without slots in the back of the section. It can be identified by a black instead of red turning knob.

I will give that a shot. Thanks so much for the suggestion and I'll let you know what happens.

 

I dug out my 80s charcoal Safari and tested a Z27 in it. Feels slightly looser than the original squeeze converter but it fits and draws water. Good luck.

Sounds good to me. For $4, I'll add it to an order I'm putting in.

 

BTW, I'm assuming that current Z50 steel nibs fit my 40 year old Safari fp. I'm ordering an EF to switch with the existing M+.

 

Thx again.

Apart from the addition of branding, I don't think the nibs have changed.

Interesting thread.  Not sure how I missed it before now.  I didn't know that Lamy made anything but the twist converters, because all of mine are relatively modern pens (even the French Blue, a recent acquisition, is only about 15 years old at most).

I seem to recall reading that some people have managed to make Parker converters fit on Lamy pens -- so would a Parker squeeze converter work?  Those turn up every now and then on eBay, although the price may be prohibitive.

As one who regularly does the opposite — i.e. put Lamy piston converters in Parker (and Aurora) pens — of course I had to try. 

A slim Parker squeeze converter will go into the end of a Safari section but takes more force to push home than I'm willing to exert.

Z27 did the trick on the 40 year old Safari though I miss the firmness and the snap of the nubbins of a Z28 on a current Safari. Holds more ink and shows ink level now. Excellent. Thanks.
