I'm not sure if this is the best place to post this, but I'm looking for a replacement nib and feed for my Wearever I don't know what model. It's a pen/pencil. I understand that these are relatively common and not of the highest quality, but I do think it looks rather neat. I do know that the current nib is after market that reads Moore Iridium Duo-tip not the smoothest writing nib, also the feed likes to keep me high and dry. I don't know what types of nibs would fit this sort of pen so I'm asking you guys. Please help me with this if you can.

If you can measure the nib, I might have a replacement.  Please contact me via email as I am going to be at the pen bench most of the day.

Why do you want to replace the nib and feed? If ink flow is poor I'd remove the nib/feed and check that the ink channels aren't blocked. Dried ink can block the narrow channels completely. Adjust the nib so it's well-aligned and tight to the feed, reassemble, and then gently take down any hard edges on the tip from the previous owner's writing style, and you'll probably have a pen that works very nicely.

 

If you're new to all this there's plenty of good advice for each of the jobs on this forum.

Thank you for the response, Indy and PDW. I have never done work on a nib before. PDW, I have only ever swapped parts. Where would I learn how to do all of that work?
