>Bond Carriage Modification


Alex asked me if there was a way to make the dot keyplates fit properly in the old Bond carriage.

The old carriage is different to the newer ones, the handle sits on top of the keyplates. As the dot 2 and 3 keyplates are double sided it means that the handle isn’t seated properly.

The way I got round it was to cut a couple of slots with a hacksaw at either side of the carriage handle:

Bond Carriage

Bond Carriage 2

As you can see I didn’t do a very neat job of it but at least now the handle sits on top of the keyplate properly.

(Please ignore the muck, I will clean it – eventually).

Talk to you later,
