Re: Missing springs on newer Royal KMM?

Well, I guess the mystery continues. I think after Christmas I'll write to this Mr. Furrier and see if I can learn something from him. Anything I find I'll post on this thread. Until then, have a Merry Christmas!

Re: Missing springs on newer Royal KMM?

I got a reply. He said this:
"Interesting question. I haven't a clue other than manufacturers were always tweaking the design of their machines for different reasons. I imagine they made changes to improve the quality of the machine or to speed up the manufacturing process or to cheapen production costs. I suppose only an insider would really know."

Perhaps this one falls in speed up/cheapen, if KMMs after '48 continued using the other design. In any case, I'm almost done cleaning it up and pictures will follow in a couple days.
