Hammond typewriters

Hello all, I was wondering if anyone has any issues with stray smudges while typing on a Hammond? This seems to happen more so on my Multiplex which has a pretty worn out shuttle guard. Also, could it be that the ribbon is over inked? I added more ink to a ribbon because the print was initially quite faint.

Also could it be the 1/2" ribbon I am using? The original was thinner. Cannot remember the original size.

Would like to hear from some other Hammond owners to see how they've made out with their machines.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Hammond typewriters

It sounds like your ribbon shield requires replacement (I assume that’s the part you mean by shuttle guard).  Those were wear items meant to be replaced.

I make my own now with good results.
