One of my Grafmatics has a strange problem.
Inner and outer wheels do not show the same number.
When outer wheel shows #1, inner one prints #2 on the sheet.
Repair suggestions are welcomed.
Thanks.

Georges

PS "Remove the wheel, it's useless" is NOT a good idea of reply.

Download the service manual linked above for 45 grafmatic. The procedure is fairly straight forward but if you have difficulty I will attempt to guide you through the procedure.

The outside number wheel mates to a gear that is riveted into place. The wheel is off a tooth or two of the gear. The film compartment number wheel is magnetically driven by the riveted gear magnet. Someone has had it apart and did not reassemble it correctly is most likely the cause. I provided the manual to Rich for posting on his site.
