I'm not perfectly up to date on typewriter jargon (english *or* dutch) but that sounds like the mechanism that you roll the paper through and that moves right to left with it. I have a big typewriter at my parents' place where you can also remove that thing. It is very wide, you can fit an A3 paper in (A4 on its side) and possibly even a typing stencil on its side (which is even wider). My theory was always that it was an extra wide model and therefore optional, hence the removability. It also has some 6 tabulator keys (maybe even more? I'm not sure), for lining up numbers 1, 10, 100, 1.000, 10.000, 100.000 and 1.000.000 and they do take the 1000s separator space into account. -Olaf. -- ___ Olaf 'Rhialto' Seibert -- You author it, and I'll reader it. \X/ rhialto/at/xs4all.nl -- Cetero censeo "authored" delendum esse.
