The knob on the left side that we use to manually forward the paper is broken. Where can I find a new one?

The "KNOB" is called the "Platen Knob".... contact any local dealer/supplier for Nakajima and they should be able to help.

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.

Does it make a grunting noise? If so, it needs a couple drops of oil on the main support shaft. Also check the indent setting. You need to use the code key to activate or deactivate the indent.
