  1. Stunning! A unique color for the ‘M’! I am sure even pulling the platen was a challenge.

    1. It's fussy, but not too bad. What's really tough is getting the chromed cover for the left end of the carriage off, as I had to in order to fix the left platen release mechanism. You have to remove the carriage return lever, disassembling it in a way that — well, let's just say that it still makes me shiver.
