Greetings Paul and Vanderbloggers (First post!)
I’ve acquired a Vandercook No 3 – OS (green) model. Serial is #9403 (currently registered to a previous owner on the census). While already functional, I am in the midst of typical maintenance/rehab and becoming familiar with this particular model.
First issue: This backside rider roller (Part M-123) is loose/large — cause by the interior of it disintegrating (there was some black gunk falling out of it). This obviously affects inking. I’m not even sure how to take this apart (if I can).
Question: Can this be replaced, modified …or do I need to look for an entire new roller carriage?
