On my IBM sel. III, when I type a "/" get a "3"

Eugene, a pleasure to make your aqaintence. I spent about seven years inside the belly of the beast and your spot on. I'm going to assume you done the obvious, it's been a long time I'm 55 and the last time I touched a Selli gas was a buck-50 a gallon but it seems to me I had a cycle clutch do somthing like that It didnt happen often but your at Max pitch, does it occur at both high speed and low speed typeing, do you have a worn set screw, I was just starting to get good on them when I went full time copiers, give me a snort and let me know what you think??,

I have an IBM wheelwriter 1500. I was typing and all of a sudden the power just died, it is plugged in, I changed batteries but nothing works.

IBM wheelwriter 6 Series II

try turning the machine off put a SMALL amount of oil on the large round rod running across the typewriter manually push the print head left and right a few times to see if it will loosen up. The problem is usually caused be drying oil you may consider having it serviced by a pro.
