Merry Christmas, Winston! Very nice Royal you have there!Regarding the non-aligned typebars, I've seen Bill at MTE fix those by using a little hook-ended too to reach inside and beneath the typebar assembly to yank upwards on the linkage bars for the affected key. He bends the linkage bar upwards and the affected typeslug bends downwards to rest at level with the other keys. Might be worth trying if your OCD gets the better of you (:
I love my Companion!
