Exciting! Magnificent solutions :D
I also dug out my old compressor and airbrush to spur me on to do something about the rusty paintwork. That may be some time coming though.
Have been enjoying your reporting on the magnificent 3D-puzzle that is this ancient cathedral-like office machine! Different and original solutions in there, the 'standard' had not been firmly established yet (though launched). Really neat to see, tnx!
I think some of this only makes sense with the machine in front of you but hopefully it is useful to the next Yostafarian as wel as a long "memo to self".
I too have been enjoying your series on the Yost 10. Your detailed photos and solution descriptions are a great resource.
Thanks Mary, your fixes are pretty inspirational too!
Very tricky stuff. I currently have a Caligraph carriage disassembled (Yost's earlier invention) and it, too, presents some challenges.
I could never tackle a job like this, but it sure is interesting to read about it!
