    That's not bad at all.
    In fact most of the techs I know around me prefer to lay on their vast experience(20+ years) and stay in analog era. They can handle any mechanical problem, but reading a book is big no-no for them.
    That's fine but at some point they will start to fail against new technologies.
    I highly appreciate senior members here with their experience and their development sometimes from typing machines of 70-80s to the nowadays when they are leading force of this fine Forum.
    Just be consistent, stay humble, ask your colleagues questions and finally one day you may find yourself amongst people here who HAVE answers
    Never argue with an idiot. They will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

    Been fixing design problems on theses machine for years these engineers are not all saints. The spring i mention does not press the roller against the drum that is 2 other springs doing that.
    The spring i refer to is for the paper guide only and the spacers for that guide press against the drum.
    Whatever

    Re: Transfer Roller damaged, damaging Drum Unit

    hey copiernerd, another idea, what if the contents of the dev unit were not circulating properly because of tank design, and over time the contents separated so that larger magnetic particles ended up at one end and smaller particles ended up at the other. I've seen dev spacers get blamed for faults when they were innocent

    RE: analog era? I have worked on the old 'handcrank smelly ink" to analog..to digital units. 70's-80's ran my own 'Bulletin Board System' wrote doorways (Edlin) etc.. Built/Repaired PC's at nite.. I READ CONSTANTLY ..and if you notice.. MOST of us '20+' year techs.. we tell the folks asking the questions where answers can be found IN A BOOK.. to RTFM = read the fucking manual.
    RE: adapt to new tech.. totally agree.. have been out of the mainstream on : Food Prep/Cooking and Construction/Re-Modeling ... in my current *self imposed* lack of employment, and desire to repair/improve the homestead, I found my knowledge in those areas lacking. It didn't take long to get to speed on certain facets of them... but AGAIN.. I read..watched..inquired and finally executed the job... all good.
    61yrs is still not to late in life to learn..but I find I do have a harder problems with lazy/people with lacking common skills/knowledge.
