Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
I have a manual portable SperryRand Remington. I have owned the machine for 20 years and just took it out of retirement! The carriage keeps going back full force to the left and will not stay in the writing position. Is there a screw/spring that needs adjusting/replacing? I am ok with things mechanical.
Check that the carriage release levers have freedom are are not binding. Also the tab key and linkage, next the space bar mechanism. From under machine observe the escapement wheel, rocker and the escapement pawls (fixed dog and loose dog). Lubricate with 10 weight . oil only no WD 40). The loose dog is the part that holds the carriage in position by holding the tooth on the escapement whee wheel assembly. GOOD LUCK
