Replacement Chad Diverter
the Flexowriter pages
One part missing Flexowriter part is small but somewhat important, or it will be important if we ever get the paper-tape punch to work. The paper-tape punch operated by punching up from below, ejecting the bits of punched chad out the top of the punch block. There is supposed to be a plastic piece on top of the punch assembly to capture the chad and divert it to the chad chute.

The screw sitting on top of the assembly behind the punch is a
UNC screw, included in the photograph in order to estimate the
diameter and threading of the hole just in front of the screw. From this
photo, it appears that this hole is intended to take a
UNF screw, a rather uncommon uncommon small screw. We infer that this
screw is intended to be used to hold the chad diverter in place.
