In For Repair

I have been contacted by a local shop to repair some of their typewriters.

Up first is this 1936 Royal O SN#526027

It needed a few repairs, namely a busted drawband and a disconnected ribbon vibrator.

1947 Smith-Corona Sterling SN# 4A227733

This one also needed repairs. Backspace pawl jammed up above backspace stop.

The final one in the trio 1926 Underwood 5 SN# 2135205-5

The Underwood needed a repair I have never seen before. Paper would not feed. So I check the feed rollers. They are fine. I am sitting here stumped when I realize that the paper table is bent inwards towards the platen thus preventing the paper from feeding into the platen.
