Question about Smith Corona Wordsmith 100 Typewriter
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?
I have one in my hand, it's 10.00 including shipping. If you send us a check we will ship it.

I wish I had one in front of me, but I don't. Brother used
two ways of holding the Platen (big black roller in place. Open the top cover
and look at the frame where the platen is held. You will likely see plastic
clips holding the axial that runs through the platen (85% of brother machines
have clips), or you will see that the axial runs directly through the frame. If
you see clips just squeeze the tabs and lift up. Note which side has the gear,
so that it is reinstalled the same way. If you don't have clips you will need
to loosen the Allen screws holding the knob to the platen roller, and the
roller will lift right out. If the label left any of the rollers sticky they
must be completely cleaned before reassembly, Goo-Gone is a good product to
remove gummy labels.
Best of luck, Ron
