Re: A question about the Underwood Touch Master 5

Thanks for the note, I will have it in mind.
And of course I shall post pictures of my findings in the proper subforums or site as well of my current typewriters.

A fairly important function for such little chain, well that discards it for now, maybe in the future I will try to make some repair experiments if I acquire a Touchmaster. I think I could find an Olympia SG3 in fairly good condition, made in Germany hopefully. The Hermes Ambassador seems like a really good option as well, thanks. 

 

I have a Touchmaster and what broke was not the chain but a plastic gear in the ribbon drive which split, if I recall correctly..A repair with wire and epoxy is holding, but then, no novels.Plastic gears and ball chains seem like an Achilles heel for such a doughty typewriter.

Re: A question about the Underwood Touch Master 5

It seem like an Achilles heel indeed.
I hope eventually to get a damaged example for repair experiments.
