It’s fun fixing these machines. At least, when you make progress! I also like the sub-genre of these test typings, there’s a kind of diary aspect to them. I save some of my test typings because they can contain some real gems.
Nice work on the Underwood. I find fixing typewriters is half the fun of having them and using them. I’ve always spun my platens down a bit before heat shrinking them out of fear the diameter would be too large and jam things.
