Going through rotate tapes.
Has maintenance card. History of rotate and shift issues, dating back to first year in service.
All other functions of the machine are good.
Cracked tilt bellcrank.
Think the rotate tape issue identified: looks to be a broken "tang" on the rotate spring, allowing tension to be released when rotating, loosening the tape and breaking it in the process.
Status: Typewriter Hunter
I love machines, machining, creating things from nothing. Typewriters have struck a romantic chord in me, thanks to my oldest son, and I am working with him and the rest of our family to acquire, restore, repair many machines.
Our collection grows in fits and spurts - as the seasons change. We make a lot of acquisitions at estate sales, yard and garage sales, thrift stores, online, and through personal connections.
The machines that we don't want to keep in our own collection, we are selling through various outlets - Etsy, Square Market, and eventually on eBay - and unlike some sellers, we KNOW how to pack a machine for shipment! :-)
Brumfield & Sons Typewriters, at your service.
