RE: Does anyone have an HP-46 printer for parts?
Sometimes I'm slow. (maybe all the time!)

What do you mean by "CLEAR printing"? Originally when I read it, I thought the hammers try to strike but don't hit the drum, i.e. print but no image, hence "clear."

You mean printing the word CLEAR after power on? Once running does CLEAR print with each press of the clear key? If CLEAR prints then all other symbols in those columns should print, if you have a large enough number. Are the other symbols in the rightmost 2 columns or where?

I would think if any symbol consistently prints correctly then the alignment of the drum, gear train and motor shaft is correct. Any column that prints should verify intact wiring, magnets work, springs work, correct signal timing, etc. i.e. if the word CLEAR prints but no numbers print in those columns, .... ya, I get the perplexment.

I may have an interpretation problem. Been taking finer adjustment as mechanical adjustment. Maybe I'm misinterpreting what you mean.
