Maintenance: Electromatic Safety

image link-topic-sf0.jpg

1. "Sales - Service" Instructions, Unnumbered Series

This series is undated, but the printing codes (for example, 129.05...) indicate that it is the original series, predating the first revised version (for example, 129.05.1..., of June, 1953).

The question naturally arises as to whether or not there were service instructions for the Electromatic Safety on the Models 31 and 32, or indeed if the Electromatic Safety was even applied to these machines. This present series contains no information about this. The June, 1953 revised series (see below) does.

Electromatic Safety for Model 34

The Model 34 seems never to have had a document in this series. By the time the ".0" release of Electromatic Safety for Model 34 Linotype came out (134.03-F-RR-1X), it was a part of the numbered "Service Instruction" series of June, 1953. (All of the other documents in that series bore numbers of the form "NNN.nn.1-...")

2. Service Instruction Nos. 1-6 (June, 1953)

This appears to be the first revision of the series of instructions. They are all dated June, 1953, and the printing codes for all but one of them are of the form "NNN.nn.1-..." The only exception is Service Instruction No. 4 for the Model 34. Its printing code is of the form "NNN.nn-..." (omitting the ".1"), suggesting that this is the initial, not revised, release of the Service Instructions for it.

Also, the fact that this series is numbered consecutively (1 through 6) for the models 29, 30, 33, 34, 35, and 36, suggests strongly that no service documentation was provided for the Electromatic Safety applied to the Models 31 and 32. This in turn strongly suggests that the Electromatic Safety was not applied to these machines. I'm just guessing with this, though.

(The Model 30 was introduced at s/n 51570; I do not know if there was a "Service Instruction No. 2" for earlier serial numbered machines. Curiously, none of the other Service Instructions in the June 1953 series specify seriel numbers of covered machines.) 130.27.1-F-RR-1X.

Electromatic Safety for Model 34 [SI 4]

Electromatic Safety for Model 34 Linotype. Service Instruction No. 4 (June, 1953). This appears to be the initial version of this document, not a revision (as are the other June, 1953 "Service Instruction" documents). Note the lack of a ".1" after "134.03..." in its printing code: 134.03-F-RR-1X.

3. Service Instruction No. 16 (Sept. 1953)

This isn't maintenance of the Electromatic Safety, per se, but rather various adjustments on certain machines when equippped with the Electromatic Safety.
