Do a search at this entire forum and you'll find an identical thread started by me awhile back.

Thanks for that.

I read somewhere a while back that it sometimes cuts into the ferrule.

Has this happened?

It can due to operator error, but that's true of anything.

I have a used one for sale. It is missing the blade holder. Does anybody know if a replacement is available from Williard?

Okay, I checked with Williard the blade holder is available for $32.50.
Anybody interested in my machine with missing blade holder. Please PM me
I think $200 would be fair.

IMHO it's the best way to do a great tip job ... only thing better is a lathe, just make sure you replace the trimmer blade often to shave the sides smooth and take it SLOW when getting tip close to the ferrule.

I have a willard typing machine. It sometimes spells the easiest words wrong. It also runs out of ink extremely fast. I would not recomend it.
