Really nice copy holder; it would be even nicer with a paint job, what do you think?

I've found this Facit 1830 at a thrift shop, and bought it without hesitation. Today I was searching it for the serial number, when I found this two levers, that I have no idea what they do. I've already checked the user manual, and got nothing. Can anyone help me with that?

You can easily find some on eBay, but some stores that repair typewriters sell ribbons too. Hope this helps.

In some cases, when you find a unusual size ribbon, depending on the conditions of it, you can simply re-ink the ribbon with some stamp ink.

Here is a link to a thread that explains the proccess.

And, if I push them back to place, they go back to the wrong position.

I was going to buy this Olivetti Lettera 82, when i noticed that some of the type hammers are not aligned with the others, and a bit loose. Is this a problem? What can happen and, can i fix this?
