Question about Typewriters
When you strike a key, the carriage return/platen moves to the left for the first 5-10 strokes just fine. After this point the mechanism slows down and within a few keystrokes stops moving all together. However if you press the release buttons you can move the mechanism freely. What's causing this and how do I fix it?
It sounds like you are coming up against your right margin. By hitting release you are merely bypassing the margin. You might try resetting your right margin by clearing it all the way to the right side of the carriage first then resetting it to where you want it.
