Abstract

Fig. 1 shows the platen 10 after the platen knobs have been removed and the cover (not shown) is removed. In this position, the platen 10 will remain in its normal position. It can still be typed on. If indexing is desired, all that needs to be done is screw in the left hand platen knob 12 containing the platen variable. The right hand platen knob 12 is not needed.
