Push down on this knurled button and slide the mechanism along the rail to set the margin (one on each side). This kind of white powdery corrosion occurs throughout the machine.

While I find all of mankind's inventions interesting, I am most enchanted by the human-scale arts and devices, the ones that can be created (and repaired) in a home workshop or studio; the ones that can be understood by looking at them; the ones that do something useful or stir admiration. Typewriters work for me.
