I would like a print head and roller.  What is the price?

 

Sorry, the order stage is already over. You can find the prices in my first post, but since I ordered no spare parts I cannot make you an offer.

Maybe someone of the ones who haven't paid yet isn't interested any more - you could then chime in.

 

 

Here the list of affected users:

 

atarian63
jacobus
GlowingGhoul
8bitbill
Atari800Xl
panama800

Umberto (missing payment for one roller)

 

Please settle the score!

Sorry for all the noise here, but I'm trying to finish the orders.

Since I haven't reached the users above, I try if the "response notification" of their posts will stop their hibernation.

 

To all others: Orders are sent.

Please be very careful with the fitting. I highly recommend to remove the front and upper parts of the case. There are parts of the old rubber, that can stuck below the wheel, which cannot be seen/removed from the top.

Be very sure you haven't any debris stuck below the drum!

If the resistance turning the wheel forward rises, turn it back (like described in the manual) and check again!

Some random thoughts

  1. Wear rubber gloves if you have them.
  2. Take your time.
  3. I ordered two "type wheels" and I broke the first one because ...
  4. Make sure you really clean out the first and last track where the little screws are. Mine had debris in there that I could not see. After breaking the first 'type wheel', I cleaned them with alcohol/q-tip, scrapped each track with a small flat head screw driver then blow it out with compressed air [repeated this about four times to make sure those two tracks were really clean.
  5. Capital 'W' always looks like a small 'w'.
  6. The longer I let it print, it would get slightly better, but also there were totally bad rows of print ... probably a printer issue, not 'type wheel' issue.
  7. I could certainly adjust the little screws, try different paper and attempt to push the 'type wheel' into the tracks more to try to get better quality.
  8. Make sure you put the little strip that holds the 'type wheel' down on the correct way. The groves face out so they can get past the 'comb' that keep the tracks aligned.
  9.  It works. Its not perfect. 

Its nice to see the 1027 printing again. Thank you Christian.

Some random thoughts

...

 

Thanks a lot for your valuable feedback! Sorry to hear that you lost one rubber - hopefully this increases at least the awareness of others.

 

* I pretty sure you can improve the output by pressing the rubber into the grooves of the barrel to reduce the streaks and shadows.

  (The barrel should be cleaned very well indeed. I used a bristle brush to wipe all junk out of the grooves.)

* The "bad rows" are often an indication of a printer problem: Not electrical but mechanical. Like written in the manual (Page 8/9) debris often bended the paper guide tongues which leads to a reduced motion of the print head and letter misalignment. Too much friction of the axis can also be the reason, as the horizontal position is of the same importance for the correct letter like the vertical one...

 

I am glad you enjoy my development anyway!

Time for a little status update:

 

I'm still missing payment from:

 

atarian63
jacobus (contact recently established)
8bitbill
Atari800Xl
panama800

 

Haven't got the shipping address from:

 

GlowingGhoul

 

I guess it's OK if I start selling the ordered parts to the users on the waiting list on a "first come - first serve" basis and do not wait any longer for the users on the first list after next weekend?

This chase is no fun and takes too much time from developments. I think about black listing the users for future projects.

What do you think?

Looking at some of the pictures of the test prints has caused me to wonder if the ink roller is getting too much ink on the printhead?

When I get mine, if it does the same thing I may mess around with the ink roller and see what happens.  I'll let you know as soon

as I can.

Platen may be to close to the head, or the head is to close to the platen.. only other problem might be material too soft or height or raised letter just a tad short.... otherwise looks pretty darn excellent...

A common problem is the used paper (too thick one). Normal copy paper is thicker than typewriter paper (at least here in Germany) and since the stamp pressure comes from the back of the paper too thick and inflexible paper results in smeary prints.

I got the print head installed and the printer is working again!  From my installation I have a few suggestions: 

Make sure the wheel is VERY clean as well as under the wheel before you install the new print rubber. 

Make sure that the new rubber print head is seated all the way into the groves in the print wheel and aligned properly.

Makes sure the four small metal 'fingers' on the front of the printhead are straight and that the don't touch any of the

     raised parts of the print rubber while spinning the wheel with the new print rubber installed (this is VERY important!).

Finally, make sure the ink roller is seated all the way down and not loose.  I found that just the slightest touch on the back

     of the ink roller caused excess ink all over the new rubber print head.

 

Thanks again Irgendwer,

DavidMil

I've never had a 1027, but a friend did, and it was pretty cool at the time to have letter-quality.

 

Just to be sure - so I can forget about ever thinking to add one to the collection - THIS PROJECT IS DONE FOREVER AND THERE WILL NEVER BE ANY MORE.  That is correct, no?

 

Good job on the project, however!  It's great to see 1027 owners back in business again!
