195X Consul Silent Serial # ZP-111635 195X Consul Silent typewriter, Serial # ZP-111635 Richard Polt's 195X Consul Silent typewriter. 2015-02-16 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Richard Polt: 195X Consul Silent Serial # ZP-111635 This is a handsome and well-made machine.

A few notes:

To access margin stops, push the paper table backwards.

This typewriter has forks for the automatic ribbon reverse but does NOT use eyelets in the ribbons. A ribbon with an eyelet will fail to reverse the ribbon and just get stuck.

If the carriage makes a rasping sound, try bring the toothed rack a bit lower so it engages the starwheel more closely. It's easy to bring it down; 2 screws on each end can be loosened.
