LGP-21 Friden Flexowriter...

In a bold and foolish move this morning, I simply plugged in the frayed
off-line power cord into the Flexo and outlet, and flipped the switch.
Motor spun, no work. Tilted down the keyboard lookup table (sic) on the
bottom, rotated the mainshaft by hand, it loosened. After that, the
thing ran!

Lubrication is dead, which was obvious before I started. I know I
shouldn't have done this, but total run time << 60 seconds, it was a
'success experience' and overall good news.

It was nice to have a physical experience after all this time of
hypotheticals and document-gathering.
