I'm back with a new typecast! ... almost...

Hi everyone! Guess what? I finally got a typecast made up! But guess what else? My scanner isn't working right. How frustrating! Anyways, I will upload it as soon as I can. Hopefully I can get it working for tomorrow. We'll see.

Have a good day!

     Hi everyone. Wow, it has been a while. I have been in Chicago since Wednesday on a school music department trip. That was fun! Anyways, I have not had time to finish my typecast, but I hope to have it done by Monday. It seems like it has been forever since I last uploaded one.
     I am still working on that Smith Premier 10. I have not disassembled anything on it yet, as I still have yet to find the best way to go about doing it. I don't want to get in way over my head, and not be able to get it back together. It looks like if I try to remove the top cover, all of the typebars will come loose, and I don't want to have to deal with that!
     I am sorry that I didn't get around to replying to the comments on the last post, so I am just about to do that as soon as I get this published.

     For lack of a better name, I just decided to use the date. How creative...

I hope everyone has had a great week, and thanks for reading!

Mechanical Difficulties

     Hi everyone. I just want to give you a quicke update. My new machine, which is a Smith Premier 10, has more problems than I originally thought. The mainspring appears to be broken, and I have no idea how to fix it. I don't want to disassemble much for fear that I will do more damage than good. I am trying to see how I can get to it with little disassembly. Any suggestions?

     I did get the typebars cleaned, so they are fairly smooth, but this latest problem is quite a disappointment. It may just have to be a display piece. I will let you know how it is going as soon as it gets going!

Everyone have a great week!
