I had a similar situation in that I found an Electra 120, which I assume is just a little bit older than the 220. Several of the typebars were disconnected and it was a pretty big pain to reattach them, but once that was done it works very well. I also prefer the touch of a manual, but that electric assistance is really nice transition for those used to typing on computers since there's pretty much no effort involved and all the keys are on the same level as opposed to the typical "levels" on manuals.

I recently acquired an Olympia SM7 that seemed to be working fine, until it got to the end of the page, and the carriage would no longer move. I found out that the main spring must have come loose within the drum. I removed the draw band from it's attachment on the carriage and when I tried to rewind the the drum, it just keeps clicking and loosing tension after one spin. I've looked into opening up the drum, but this sounds like a total pain. So wondering if anyone has extra drum lying around that you wouldn't mind selling

Thanks. I actually ended up finding the remaining part of the aligning scale buried in the packing the typewriter came in, and I was able to superglue it to the pieces still attached to the typewriter. It's a good enough fix.

I just bought an Olivetti Underwood Studio 44 that is in good working condition, but unfortunately the plastic paper holder on the left was broken off. I've attached an image in case I'm using the wrong terminology for this part. This is probably why I got it for a pretty good price on eBay. I was wondering if anyone has one of these lying around and would be willing to sell it?https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/RDIAAOSwAvNcx5DS/s-l1600.jpg
