The distance between the letters are not even. Usually some letters even partly are OVER each other. We really do not want that. I've lubed the machine the best I could but it doesn't help.

I've been Googling on info about this problem and the only solution I found was: "bring it in for service". Now.....I don't think there's still (m)any people who could fix this, and I don't want to think about the costs of fixing it. The issue has something to do with the wires that are used to position the head....very mechanical stuff, and I'm allergic to mechanical stuff ;)

I will put some scanned print-outs (also of the new one) on the proper thread....

Yup. I tried to do a compare 2 days ago and now I only get junk from the IBM....it's getting worse....

So, there's no real way back, I'll scan and upload how it looks with the new typewriter, I really think everyone will be able to live with that, and if not peole can always order the blank labels and try to emboss the letters in their own way.


I forgot to mention that on the flea market I also found a poster from an old computer magazine, I think it was called [cough-cough] Commodore User [graghaghgggghaaaghggggh-cough] and has some Barbarian styled artwork on it. Didn't have a close look yet. Will make a pic and post tonight.

Also I found a four-way Gameboy thing If anyone is interested in those, let me know.

Very nice !! That'll run a cab or 5 at least :)

Robin is great at scanning flea-markets.

We have one every year at our music club and Robin scored a totally fantastic record player last year for a great price, mainly because I was not there on the friday evening (because I would have picked it out and bought it myself OR would have priced it correctly ) ;)

Forgot the brand, but it was a totally high quality one. Funny story, Robin told all the other people were "fighting" about the lousy quality all-in-1 sets and old TV's (mainly immigrant people, our best customers...) and they were amazed that he picked out that "worthless" vinyl player.... ;D ;D

Remind me of the brand please Robin. It has a _massive_ platter...and beautiful tone arm...

Cool, what model do you own? I think I will ask one for my birthday this year (and sell the Technics SL-1410)...
