|This is Hermes 3000 #2 partially assembled with a test sheet in it.|
The Hermes project is really progressing much easier than I thought it would. The proof will be when everything is assembled and the typewriter works.
Then I plan to tackle a pair of Noiseless Model 7 machines. One needs cleaning and one needs some minor repairs and a draw cord. Speaking of which...I changed my first one today on an Olivetti Studio 44. I used monofiliment for fishing since I was at work on my lunch hour and I had some in my truck.
I never changed one on an Olivetti anything and I was surprised how easy this one was to replace. I hope to be adding this machine to my collection when I finish cleaning and adjusting it. This was one of those Ebay "every thing works fine, all the keys work and none stick". Well, I will go into detail when I post on the Studio 44 sometime in the next year.
