  1. I have a decent collection of the striped WEAREVER PACEMAKER pens, pictured below. I have 10 of the FPs and one mechanical pencil (2nd from left). I've collected this pen so far in four different colors. PenHero has covered Wearever pens quite extensively in other topics in the Other North American pens section, and has provided us with wonderful, professionally made photos, so I won't go over well-covered territory here. I've just provided various photos of my collection for what they are worth to you. My ultimate purpose here is to discuss a common repair issue with these pens -- the cr

    Nib Info Needed

    I just received two nibs from someone who knows I like pens. The nibs were straight out of a box from the '40s (has been opened since, but still exciting). I was excited to hear about them, and I want to know more! One is a Wearever nib, a company I am very familiar with, but I would like to know if anyone has any more info about the nib (reads WEAREVER and underneath: "4". (Nib on the right). The nib on the left reads "champion" and underneath "14k"and "plated". I am not familiar with a "champion" company. The nib needs repair, but it seems like it is in fairly good condition. Thanks for a
  3. Just acquired this Wearever pen that appears to be a Pennant model, except for a few details that are different from any Pennant I've seen. For one thing, it has a 14k nib with clear feed. The cap is slightly different in that it has no polished cap band. Also, the section is the same color as the barrel instead of being black. In addition, the cap lip is smooth, not coin edged. The barrel imprint reads "WEAREVER, NORTH BERGEN NJ, USA". Does anybody know how this pen fits in to the Wearever line or the Pennant line? Or is this either a prototype or a frankenpen? Thanks!
  4. I am trying to restore an old Wearever lever filler pen that I bought on ebay. It's my first attempt at fixing an old pen. When I dip tested the nib and feed they seemed to work well and produced a nice fine line. The sac was a hardened mess inside. So I opened it up and cleaned everything out. I ordered the sac, shellac, and talc from Anderson Pens, and replaced the sac. It was much easier than I thought it would be and so I thought I had done it. However, when I filled it with ink (a Blackstone Barrister Brown), and tested it was very very wet. In fact, it was gushing. So I reset th
  5. I would greatly appreciate the community's help in definitely identifying this vintage Wearever ballpoint pen which I purchased on ebay a number of years ago. Somehow, I thought that I was ordering a fountain pen but I must have overlooked something because I received an interesting ballpoint instead. I've found practically no references to this pen on the internet and very few photos. The photos I have found are on ebay or other auction sites like here and here and here. In Speerbob's listing on ebay, he describes the pen as circa 1957 but gives no other info regarding the model or series.
  6. I picked up this Wearever bulb-filler at a junk store, but have been unable to identify it. The cap band is missing (and those two smudges on the cap are from my inky fingers). Any idea of the model and approximate production date? Thanks. (corrected a spelling error)
  7. Hey everyone! I apologize in advance for the lack of photos; pens are all apart right now for cleaning/repair...will add pics later... Since I had to drive home from school (Walla Walla to Bellevue) to pick up a bicycle (long story) I thought I'd seize the opportunity and visit all the antique shops on the way and see what I could find. I am quite pleased with what I've found! In order of coolness, they are: -A Parker Duofold in black and white pearl celluloid with a flex (!!!) nib, has both clip and ring (???) -A small Majestic in blue and bronze celluloid with a flexible 14k warranted ni

    Pen Noob In Tennessee

    Salutations and Hiyahs, I'm not a techie, so the low-tech but quality workmanship of fountain pens attracts me. Probably a bit of a tactile person, too, who likes the feel of a good pen and good ink on quality paper. That feeling is right up there with beautiful sunsets, college football, sausage gravy and biscuits, and the kiss from an English Bulldog (probably in that order, too). Small starter collection of mostly Esterbrooks (a couple of Js and a few M2s), a Wearever Zenith, Diamond Point from the mid-40's, a Waterman's Ideal (barrel only, looking for a cap), and a few newer ones (YA
  9. I have two Wearever pens that are in good condition but one has a good sac but needs some adhesive. the other has a good sac but was glued with super glue. Probably best for people that do not have big hands. CONUS only. Thanks, Rene'
  10. Hello all! Newbie here. I have a purchased a button fill Wearever in need of repair. The button mechanism is a red jewel (plastic). I have ordered a new pressure bar, cleaned the pen but, the red "button" is sticking when it is pressed down. i have taken it apart and cleaned everything pretty well. I am under the impression that these buttons slide rather easily when depressed and will spring back up when all is assembled. I hate to put everything back together with new parts and have the button stick again. What can I do to allow the button to slide rather than stick? Thank so much for y
  11. I'm fairly new to fountain pens. I bought this pen off eBay with little information, although it did say it needs to be cleaned. Based on the appearance, it is a Wearever pen with an iridium nib and a lever fill. Any information on this pen would be great.
  12. My first repair, and the first topic I've started. Whoo!! I found this pen at an antique mall for 50 cents (along with a couple Welsharps that are still needing some fine tuning.. ahem.) Anyway, I'm rather pleased with myself. I got it all cleaned out, slightly polished, re-sacked, and adjusted the nib to the best of my ability. It has some dents on the tines that the previous owner must have put there in prying the nib out, but it still functions. I had to gently close the gap between the tines as well, as the flow was extreme. Now, this is a nice little writer. A slightly hard-starter afte
  13. Can someone ID this Wearever I scored for cheap on eBay. I'm currently in the process of restoring it. The pens seems to be made of celluloid and it is faceted with 8 sides. And is a flat top. Lever filler. Screw on cap. http://i.imgur.com/PPJgVtR.jpg?2 Dimensions: Whole pen: Length capped: 5" Length posted: ~5-3/4" Cap: Length: 2-3/16" Width: 1/2" Barrel: Length w/ section & nib: ~4-7/16" Length w/o section & nib: 3-5/16" Width: 7/16" Section: Length: 1/2" Width at thinnest point: 11/32" Nib: #4...?? Stanles GP steel If anyone can help me ID this I'd appreciate it.
  14. Hi, folks! When I am not playing with Sheaffer or Swan Visofil pens, I have a secret interest in Wearevers. I guess it's because when you go pen hunting there are just so darn many of them in antique shops and I can't just pass over them. Wearevers are kind of like filler in between nicer pens, but I tend to pick them up anyway and have accumulated a lot of them. Some Wearever pens are surprisingly decent pens and many are just plain junkers - something to learn how to do sac replacements. One particular Wearever pen I will always grab, if cheap and in good condition, is the 1950s Wearev
  15. I have got the third Wearever Pennant pen in my hands and all of the caps on them screw up very tight. Is it because the plastic under aluminum overlay somehow shrinking with age? Nevertheless, what is possible to do with this problem? And is there a layer of varnish on Wearever's aluminum caps? Could it be polished with satisfactory results?
  16. I've started to acquire and restore some Wearever pens. with a minimum of work I figure people can get the feel of a vintage pen for $15 or $20 or so. (Esterbrooks, although also excellent pens are getting pretty pricy for anything in decent condition.) They clean up and write quite nicely. I did find one pen whose nib was labelled as "flex", although it was definitely on the stiff side of flex! Some of the ones I have are in mint condition as they were part of a salesman's sample kit. One is a mini-combo that is really cute and works very well. the sac is still pliable and because it's a
  17. 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.e

  19. Found some pens at a local "antique" shop today. Not the greatest deal, but decent to my inexperienced eye. Four fountain pens: Wearever lever filler Wearever cartridge pen Eberhard Faber lever filler Shaeffer cartridge pen (in taupe, much bigger than a school pen) Three ballpoints/mechanical pens: Shaeffer mechanical pencil (working), local Walton business name on it (business long gone) Bell Telephone mechanical pencil Old ballpoint with metal refill, with local business advertising on it (business long gone). The last was the most expensive at $5. Total $20. I guess because I uplo
  20. These will need some restoration work before they can write again. Just arrived today from the Bay of E, and these are the ones I know the least about. Keystone pen and pencil combo: http://i61.tinypic.com/214cpja.jpg The nib is marked 'Durium 14K Plate'; half the gold seems to have been worn away, though. The mechanism for advancing the pencil lead works great. This is something I've never seen before: an acrylic feed. This is a Wearever lever-fill, but I have no idea what year it was manufactured: http://i60.tinypic.com/14aa23k.jpg I've seen conflicting information on what model t
  21. 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. http://i719.photobucket.com/albums/ww191/Park
  22. I'm repairing a Wearever Deluxe fountain pen and noticed that the J bar was corroded and broken. I'm thinking about purchasing a new J bar online but am not sure what size to get. Any suggestions? Thank you! -Jason
