I have very little expertise but I think the font is Olympia #69 Script. The uppercase E does not descend as it and the uppercase C do on their #75 Script font.

Does anyone know how to make the ring and cylinder adjustment on a Groma Gromina? The typebars strike the ring leaving about 0.020" gap between the slug and the platen. With a temporary shim behind the paper, the type is clear, on-feet and alignment both look great. 

Thanks for any direction. According to TWD it looks like at least Uwe owns one.

Take care,
Brent

Pete,
As usual you were on the money. The instructions in Joe's video were what I needed. I was pleasantly surprised at how many machines have the feature.

Take care,
Brent

I see in old ads the LC Smith machines feature half spacing. Any idea how to employ it?

They show the following lines of type all using the same width on the page.

Can anyone tell me how to adjust Ring and Cylinder on a 1924 Royal 10?

While were on the subject will the carriage rack from a KMM or KMG fit a 10? They certainly look like the same piece on cursory examination. 

Thanks in advance for any help.

Take care,

Pete,

Thank you for the reply. Those are helpful. I think I have the margin set working. Next session I'll try to figure out how to set and clear tabs.

Take care,
Brent

Can anyone explain to a neophyte how to set and clear the margins and tabs on an Erika M? I have no experience with key set machines. I can use the green square button as a temporary margin release but I have no idea how to set or permanently clear margins or tabs.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Take care,
Brent
