Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
You have a classic 1950's collectors item.I don't think you would get spare parts of this classic equipment nor service support from the parent company .
I would advice you not to remove the cradle unless you have clock repairing skills.At the end you might be left with a few springs and levers !!.
You could go ahead with the idea of using a small drill bit and and putting a small screw to hold the broken parts together. Best would be to push the cradle all the way out to get access.And instead of using nut and bolt you can buy a 2mm drill bit and threader so you can put in a bolt with out a nut into the thread itself.But remember what ever you do the force involved to push the carriage back and advance the paper to the next line is very high. Do the repair work only if you think this new joint will take the stress or your efforts will be in vain.
But I feel you should fix it at least to restore it to its old glory even if it is not practical and you are the original first hand owner !!!.
