Question about Brother EM-430 Typewriter
When you press a key, does the hammer move (that is what strikes the print wheel). If it doesn't, turn off the typewriter, and squirt a small amount of denatured alcohol on the hammer and try to move it in and out, (carefully!). Sometimes they gum up and stick.
