So I finally got to fix my Model P Royal typer yesterday and today, and the biggest concern I had was crumbling feet and this massive splodge of a rust spot in the paper feed. The chrome around that area was already starting to peel, so I chickened out on doing too much on it. I’ve just smoothed it out and just put it back together. I had an idiot moment and actually jammed the platen back in and couldn’t take it out. Panic panic panic.
Lesson learnt: don’t be a hero and just shove the platen in.
Luckily the platen came out with a shove and yank with string.
Type slugs shot.
I can’t believe this is mine.
I need help to name this piece. I can’t think of anything suitable!
