Model M bolt mod disapointment
« on: Thu, 17 May 2012, 16:04:17 »
I pulled my model M apart. I was pretty careful, used an exacto chisel blade for the rivets.

This is what I found when I got it apart.

Any thoughts on what to do about it or if its usable?

There are several posts regarding fixing cracks in the barrel plate (I think it is called a "frame" by Unicomp) using various techniques involving epoxy.

Unicomp will sell you a new one pretty cheap, too.

Not the end of the world. Cheer up
For the first time, the United States has been demoted to the status of "backsliding" democracy by a major global watchdog of such things. The International IDEA think tank made the change in its newest report, citing "declines in civil liberties" and other factors. The United States now joins troubled inching-towards-autocracy nations like Hungary and Poland — which, notably, have recently been celebrated by far-right pundits as potential models of what this nation should become.
We are still a democracy, but the things that make us a democracy are themselves under attack. International IDEA is blunt in pinning the blame where it belongs, calling Donald Trump's attacks on the legitimacy of the 2020 presidential election "a historic turning point." The Guardian quotes International IDEA Secretary General Kevin Casas-Zamora as he notes that "the increasing tendency to contest credible election results, the efforts to suppress participation (in elections), and the runaway polarization" are among the "most concerning developments," and that Trump's attempted nullification of the election with false claims of fraud “was soon replicated, in different ways, in places as diverse as Myanmar, Peru and Israel."
