An Exceedingly Deliberate Act
Post-Script: This recruiting your relative to become a fellow typist business is a bit like enlisting a family member to become a fellow anarchist; there's always more at stake, for them and yourself, than what first appears. I do hope he truly enjoys his hobby, rather than feeling he has to do it out of a sense of obligation to me. But, even so, if he keeps at it long enough, it will become habitual, will take hold of him, I'm almost certain. I think the biggest factor will be if his machine remains reliable. Mechanical issues can become a deal-breaker, unless a person is predisposed to fiddling with things mechanical.

The intermittent carriage movement problem seems to be entirely gone, though a few of the type slugs will stick at their fully extended position after releasing their keys, indicative that more work is to be done; but this machine is already a joy to use, I can hardly see going back to using another machine in my collection.
