|Remember my SM4 from my last post?|
|This is how the space bar will allow the machine to type|
|From this position to about half way down all carriage functions work fine.|
|This is the linkage to activate the escapement. Types fine.|
|The space bar linkage when properly fitted and the machine will not funcito.|
|This is what should be normal space bar alignment. The machine will not type. Even the carriage lock will not align.|
Adding good washers exaggerates the situation and really locks the machine.
I cannot find any place that slipped or that can be adjusted. It does not appear a former owner bent anything. I have found and magnified many of the photos I found on line that show the bottom workings of the machine. They all look normal to me, but when I make my SM4 normal it will not work
I'll move on to the Underwood Universal problems if I ever decide to return to working on it,
Maybe that is why I only paid $5.00!
Sorry for my typos. From the workbench again.
