We just finished the Telegraph reader needs some fine tuning and stain but works pretty good.

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.  :)

I did have a good day Lenn and if I could remember my Morse code I would have known what you sent. Anyway I really like your paper printer, very ingenious and works well - that would be a very helpful device to have in a lot of instances in the old days. As usual I'm impressed with what you come up with - well done!
Regards,
Larry
