You _must_ bolt the typing unit -- the main chassis -- down. If you
don't, you'll do a lot of damage when you ship it. THere's a hole
underneath that takes a self-tapping screw to do this -- officially the
screw was supposed to be cliped to one of the carriage belt brackets
inside, but I've never seen one. If all else fails, 'borrow' a screw
from, say, the platten mounting for this.
