Its punches all the holes fine, every character has a different hole-pattern :)
So than its probably a selector problem, the question now is, where can I
find the selector ?
You really have to help me here because I have no idea about Teletype's but
they are o so cool.
(imho I think vintage mechanical equipment is just as cool or even cooler
than vintage computers :)
