FPN appearing slow

Hi guys, I'm still here!

I recently bought a Wearever at an antique stop. A bit of a learning experience -- made me look up the brand, and I learned that Wearever produced models prolifically, some even without names. That makes ID more challenging, of course, which is why I need your help. :3 I bought my pen for around eight bucks, by the way -- was that an OK deal? Anyway, so I am curious now as to what model it is, if it has a name, and where I can acquire a converter or cartridge(s) to use with it. The pen is the same as the one pictured to the far right in this eBay listing: http://www.ebay.com/...=item1e919703f8 .

Thanks in advance for the help.

The good news is that, maybe with a little adjustment, it should be a really good writer. The bad news is that if it is indeed a cartridge pen, it will get a little tricky. Wearever cartridges were proprietary. You'll have to shop around and find either a used one, or some new old stock ones, and refill them.

Thanks, that's what I figured. I guess I'll have to do some hunting around on the Internet. :S Though, I'm still wondering, do you happen to know what the model name of that pen is?
