|Alle Projecten - Project Toevoegen|
Our Olivetti Programma 101 has been sitting idle in a cellar for at least 10 years. Because of the way the machine is build and its age, all the mechanical parts have been gummed up. grease and oil are turend into goo, including the varous belts. so checking and fixing the machine is only possible after thourough cleaning and lubricating the machine and providing new belts.only the are we able to chel if there is something wrong with the electronics of this calculator.
The assembly of mechanisc is divided into some logic modules, fixed to each other and the chassis with sometimes hard to reach screws. (now phrased "Reversed italian Screw Placement") Where you expect the head of the screw, you find the other end. so for some screws you need to stick a very long screwdriver completely through the assembly to reach it.
the modules are:
- the keyboard module.
- the printer module.
- the servo module.
- the card reader module.
- the motor.
- the main cooling fan.
