      Glad to hear this works.

      That is one common solution.  The other, that I have used, is to use an adhesive backed
      rubber foot.  At the suggestion of a local RTTY guy, I added heat shrink tube over the
      hammer and foot to be sure the foot remains in place.  This has worked and the shrink
      tube shows no sign of wear so far. There is no sign of any damage to the type cylinder.
      I�ve used maybe a quarter roll of paper.

      I bought a foot of 3/8" OD  1/4" ID plastic tubing from the hardware store and inserted over the print hammer head (with the old rubber pad removed).  Seems to work great...any comments?  Anyone done this see any long-term damage?
