esterbrook safari vacuum fill ink capacity of sac source of replacement sac



Recommended Posts

Hello Esterbrook experts:

 

I just received a nice Esterbrook Safari vacuum fill FP.  I found a picture online from a prior FPN post of the funny little sac inside.  Three questions. First, what would you say the ink capacity is of this sac in milliliters? Second, if one had to replace this sac, what kind of sac could be used?  The Waterman ink vue?   Last, is the section glued on, or, basically, how do I to get it off if I have to? Many thanks.

 

Dick

Hello, Dick.

To answer your first question, I don't know how much ink the sac holds, but just "eyeballing" it while filling/expelling, it appears to have about as much as a standard J-pen.  Second, I believe the closest sac is still one of the larger W'man Ink-Vue kind.  And third, the section is friction-fit to the barrel, and can be removed with great care.

Paul-Thank you.  In a prior thread on FPN, it was mentioned that the J pen would get about .67-.70 ml of fill.  On the pen I have, I only get .3ml, so I am wondering if there is an issue somewhere.  I purchase pens to restore and resell.

I got the section off and the sac was crumbling.

A waterman ink-vue sac will fit perfectly. I cannot remember if I used the standard or lady Patricia size, but when I did my safari rebuild whatever size I had on hand worked perfectly. probably just the standard size.

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.

      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.

      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to

      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
