typecasts and typewriter reviews
Are the slugs hitting the platen unevenly or is the ribbon shot? I've had some with hard platens that were fine once I installed a new ribbon and used a backer sheet.Nice typewriter and type face.
My first inclination is to look at the ribbon. But there appears to be a bit of ribbon rubbing on the page. I have a feeling that there's some bigger issues with this guy.
yeah, a backing sheet does help some, but really it just needs a bit more force than I use. Then when I try to strike a bit harder, I mistype more often. That's a fairly new ribbon that admittedly may be drying out.
I remember reading somewhere (on the Typosphere) that these are not very good typewriters even when in good condition. I have no firsthand experience of them though. :)
Antares ... not known for great quality.
Let me know if capcha comes back. Thanks for commenting.
