Abstract

A tip of a solenoid armature is positioned against a solenoid adjustment screw on a print hammer body by a relatively small coil current prior to normal operating current being supplied to the coil to activate the print hammer body for printing so that a spring is not required to hold the tip of the solenoid armature against the solenoid adjustment screw on the print hammer body.
