How do I change the left margin on this typewriter?


There are two levers at the back of the carriage with a small arrow mark on them. You normally depress them and slide. A bell rings when the carriage approaches the right margin.

How do I set or change the margins on my Royal Safari typewriter?


If you are following user's manual instructions to reset the margin and can't, maybe your Royal Safari is defective? Insist trying and if still no luck try to ge a typwriter repairman, a species in near extintion by now.

Royal FP Typewriter's left Magic Margin is not holding. How can I fix it?


There is a spring that holds the margin together locking in place, most likely the spring is gone or the teeth are broken.

After typing first line, hit the return key. The carriage would not return to the far left margin...it only moved 12 or so spaces to the left.


The carrier slides on a silver shaft that is about 1/2" thick spray some WD40 on the shaft, if that doesn't do it you have to get some on the carrier motor bearings located under the case in the R. rear corner.

L.C. Smith & Bros. typewriter No. 5 Margin setting


Make sure the carriage lock switch isn't on (presuming it has one). A carriage lock switch prevents the carriage moving when in transit (say, inside its case). These switches are usually located on the right hand side of the carriage, slightly underneath.

Margin settings


You have to hold the magic margin button down while you move the carriage all the way to the left, then release the margin button. Then repeat for thr right margin. Hold the right magic margin button down while moving the carriage all the way to the right, then release the margin button.

Resetting the margins on a manual typewriter.


I can't be for sure if these are auto set margins, but it sounds like they might be. If they are, first move the carriage as far to the right as you can. Hold the Left Margin Set (not Margin Release) lever as you move the carriage all the way to the left. Release the Margin Set Button or Lever. Now hold the Right Margin Set Button or Lever (not the Margin Release), and move the carriage all the way to the right while holding the Margin Set. Once the carriage is all the way to the right, release the Margin Set. Move the carriage to the place you want to set your left margin. Hit the Left Margin Set and then release. Move the carriage to where you want to set the right margin. Hit the Right Margin Set and release it. It gets confusing, but Margin Release does not set margins. Its sole purpose is only to bypass the margins. Hope this helps.
