A jeweler, maybe.

The machine is not a 3000, but a Hermes Rocket 1956, a model that looks like a combat correspondent's typewriter.

I may have tried to restring the drum a bit too roughly.    Oops.
It has never been repaired, no parts ever replaced.    I just need to open the drum and see what it needs. 
Thank you,

Ivan

Yes, 

I did get a few.   It took a moment to see how to minimize shipping costs (as that is usually a big part of the price),
Half were in worse shape than first realized, but I did get an Underwood portable that I can have fixed. The case is a mess, but I can put together something.

If you don't mind getting something you've really wanted but is a fixer-upper, you can have the self-satisfaction of giving something  classic new life.

Hello,  

The drum spring for carriage return went kaput.
Are there any replacements out there?   

Is there a substitute piece?

I'm hitting a wall.

Do you need to take off the base?
I have some existing yet short lines attached to each side.

I expect it to be more simple than I think. 

Anyone had this on he same model?

Has anyone found any typewriter cases? I have a Remington 8 Noiseless and a Remington All-In-One without cases.

It cut the costs, but.......   It's a pain to move them. 

Any ideas?

Might just have to McGuiver it and build them.
