Hermes fun

Well, I got the bottom off the 3000 and followed the linkages for the backspace key. It looks like there is a small lever at the end that is maybe supposed to key into a cogwheel, but it doesn't, it is loose and floppy; however, it is  deep in the bowels of the beast and not accessible without major surgery which I am not qualified for, lol. I would rather just bump the carriage back a space and still have a functional machine than have one in pieces! Maybe someday I will find a typewriter doctor.
