Hi Mark

It looks like the Silver Reed Leader is the same base unit as the SR100, just with a tabulator system. The platen should come off the SR100 the same way. You may need to wrap a length of seat belt webbing around the platen and pinch the ends together with a pair of pliers to use as a strap wrench so you can hold it solid while you loosen the left platen knob. Tom The Typewriter Man will probably have some good suggestions on how to get the left platen knob off. What part of your SR100 is missing? All the best,

Sky

Hi everyone
I'm after the cog/sprocket/gear wheel that goes on the end of the platen for line advance, my model is a silver reed sr100 tabulator , I'm guessing that different models use same parts, so does anyone out there have what I need, this is the only part missing and otherwise works fine and to good to just throw away, so if anyone out there can help me keep another one on the road, I'd really appreciate it.
Regards
Mark

Hi sky,
          You absolute 🌟, tried what you said and it worked, however and I'm not sure if it makes any difference, it's a silver reed leader II, I also have a silver reed sr100 that missing a part but is stuck fast and still won't budge, the leader which is the working typewriter undone easily, so now its soaking in my concoction lol, I'd had a look at the first platen I put in, and though it's firm still, the texture is different, it gives ever so slightly with my nail, but not enough to leave a indentation, we'll see at the end of the week.
Regards
Mark
