Broken Platen Knob

The knob for the platen fell off. The inner part that connects to a metal bar which turns the platen broke. Do you have an extra knob? How much are they?
Thank you.

Have a Nakajima AE-710 typewriter and roller knob is broken-- cannot turn roller with knob. Please let me know if this is something we can order. Thanks!


I googled the part on the internet and saw a number of them available. I only looked at the first few results and found them priced from around $12 to $30 . Amazon had the widest price range. If you google "Nakajima Platen Knob" a number of results turn up. The Nakajima's were made by Swintec (or vice-versa) so the Swintec platen knobs are interchangable.
Hope this helps

Broken Platen Knob on Olivetti Lettera 25


Platen knobs are usually held by an Allen screw in the side of the shaft, which can be hard to see and get at, but have a good look.

Hitting Return just brings the carriage back to the start of the same line and doesn't insert a line break on a smith-corona


Assuming this is a mechanical machine with elect5ric motor:
Verify the line space selector is not set on 0. (just inside LH platen knob)
Check that the LH platen knob does no have a push lever sticking out to the left.
Try placing a few drops of oil at the left portion of the platen, just left of the metal teeth (the linespace pawl may be jammed and not restoring to rest position)

Advancing the paper


I need ti know if you turn the platen knob with the power on is there any hasitation or is it free wheeling. if it's free then the motor belt is broke or a gear has snapped. if there is hasitation it may just need some light oiling on the bearings. turn the type off turn the platen if fills hard lightly oil both shafts at eather side of platen by side frame. hope this works

Platen


I believe that oly's platen knobs are threaded into the platen. Grip the platen and unscrew the knob. This can require a bit of force if it has been together for a long time.

Paper advance


The paper release lever may be in the release mode. try holding the left platen knob and pulling lightly on the paper is should not allow the paper to move freely, if it is ok try holding the left knob and turning the right knob in the direction you would to turn the paper in it may have come loose if so turn it all the way back in do not over tighten it your machine does not click when the platen is turned it uses electronics to hold the platen on line.
