How can I set a right hand tab

I assume you are talking about Flush Right Tabulation.

To set a flush right tab:
(1) Position the carrier (or cursor) at the point where you want a flush right tab to be set.
(2) Hold down the Tab set/clear key and press the 2 key.

To clear a flush right tab:
(1) Press the Tab/back tab key to move the carrier (or cursor) to the flush right tab position.
(2) Hold down the Code key and press the Tab set/clear key.

To use a flush right tab:
(1) Press the Tab/back tab key to move the carrier (or cursor) to the flush right tab position.
(2) Type the text. Characters will appear on the display as they are typed. Corrections can be made on the display before the text is printed.
(3) Press the Print key. The text is printed aligned with the flush right tab position.

Hi, I need to know how to set the tabs on my Hermes Baby typewriter and how to tab to the set place. No manual, and it has me floored. Has a key on the top left row with two arrows on it, each pointing in...

On the top row there should be 2 keys one + one - these are the set and clear tab keys. Theone with the 2 arrows is the margin release key there should also be a key that says tab that will move you rfom tab to tab.

How do you clear a tab someone preset. when I get to the far right of page and hit return it will on return to a tab. How do I clear all the preset margins or tabs.?? thanks

To clear margins, you have to hit the return button to find the left margin, then hit margin release and back space to move the margin left or spacebar to move to the right, then hit left margin button to set the new position. Right margin now. Hold spacebar down and find right margin position, hit margin rease and either spacebar to the right or backspace to the left to the new margin position then hit right margin button to set the new position. Tabs now. hit the tab key, when it goes to the first set tab, hit the tab clear key, then hit the tab key again, then tab clear again etc.

The usual method is to tab to the point to remove and then either toggle the tab with the set or remove tab key.

IBM Selectric Typing carriage doesn't stop moving. Stuck key?

It sounds like a possible tab knockoff problem. This could be a small spring loose or broken in the escapement portion of the machine or the final knockoff in the tab unit out of alignment. You can try setting a tab before the end of the carriage by holding the carrier in place and using your other hand to press Tab Set, but the alignment may be just far enough off to keep you from actually setting the tab. One other thing that sometimes will cause the problem is the pitch setting lever is between the two pitches. Make sure your pitch setting lever is seated in its home position.
