Hi Chuck, May I suggest you hang out on the Greenkeys reflector? There are
several folks over there who have much experience with Teletype rebuilding
than I do. They could probably tell you how to fiddle with the code bars
with only one hand.

Low traffic on that list, but there is a wealth of knowledge lurking there.
I think one or two others on this reflector subscribe to Greenkeys other
than me (or used to anyway.)

To join the mailing list, send email as follows:

BODY: subscribe greenkeys

Good luck Chuck! I've got a KSR33 keyboard unit I need to reassemble
myself someday. Just need a very quiet day alone and no coffee. I've got
help though in having several complete machines around here to peek at and
TTY tech manuals.

Regards, Chris
