Re: vandercook repair/trip mechanism/Boston area
- The trip spring, X-23790, is one of our stock items, and if the
broken spring is the flat spring steel as opposed to the earlier
coil spring, then you should have a pair on hand before Perry visits
you--will save time and money. The SP-15 and SP-20 will both work
with one spring broken, but not for too long because of the added
stress put on the surviving spring.

snapped off, but the mystery is that I can't find the that
unattached piece anywhere on the floor or caught inside.?? So, here
is a question--would the mechanism work with only one spring
intact?? I wonder this because I just aquired the press recently and
have been printing on it for only a?few days?--perhaps that side was
broken when I got it and this other side is jammed??
