Re: Telegraph Reader

Figured it out, dang operator couldn`t run over and turn the paper on when a message came in, wired it to the solenoid and there`s enough delay in the pen lifting and lowering to make the spaces between the letters. Works good and when i get the new key installed it will be a dandy. :) https://i.img...

Re: Telegraph Reader

There`s something wrong with the wiring, the operator wouldn`t be there to turn on the motor that runs the paper when the message came in.
If i wire the paper motor to the solenoid it would stop between letters so that wouldn`t work, wonder how one would wire that ?
