A good rescue operation indeed!

Nice!  What are the bottom parts?  Also, for the symbol/number keys will you just use an extra pack of those 'keys' and print the symbols out?

I wonder if you could use these to make a colorful keyboard?  Maybe, print out your own letter keys, and just use the metal parts.  Also, if you got some of that clear epoxy to fill in the keys (you know, like that stuff they use to cover tables in theme restaurants, so they can have stuff like seashells or whatever embedded in the table) instead of using the supplied stickers would it make a more durable key?  Ideas!

The bottom parts are the little plastic things that come with glo sticks!
Yes I will print the numbers.
How do you adjust the shifted characters?

The plastic parts that come with glow sticks... Clever.  Does that include the flat plastic part too?  I'm trying to remember what all comes with glow sticks.

Are you asking me how to adjust the shifted characters?  I'm not sure what you are talking about.  Maybe I've missed something in the thread.

Exactly the tops of uppercase letters won't show up

Oh yeah, I have no idea how to do that for that typewriter.  That will be a question for someone else! You might look at that Navy typewriter manual, http://www.hnsa.org/resources/manuals-documents/single-topic/typewriter-maintenance/

It has lots of good info, and I think aligning typeface is in there.  Not sur if it address that specific typewriter, but you may find something useful.

Pages 20 and 40 discuss what you were asking about.

What would be the best way to remove all the crinkle paint from this machine
Strip it down to the frame and repaint?
