11 Cents… 10 Months… the woodstock fix…

10 months ago I bought a factory rebuilt Woodstock… there was a stripped gear that caused the carriage to skip and advance and slip… I put coins between the space when the screw holding the gear in place was stripped… it has held up very well with this cheap fix.  In fact I started with a quarter and a cent;  now only need a dime and a cent.

My favorite post on this typewriter is… my favorite post with this typewriter are from September 2012… Wisdom Tooth  and thoughts on my father’s father… RH

This 1917 rebuilt Woodstock keeps working... all it took... a dime and a cent.

    So do I… I’ve thought of finding the replacement screw… or more conventional fixes. But this works and is fun to look at.
    Gee…
