Roneotype No.1

Hello everyone. I am only new to this forum and am hoping someone can help me, or point me in the right direction to get help.

I have a Roneotype No.1 with a cylindrical platen for metal type to be fitted, plus the Roneotype Printing Attachment. It’s not actually working and is really showing it’s age. I’d love to restore it to full working condition, but information and photographs of this machine are almost non existent. There are several photographs on the web of the duplicator version of this machine.

Does anyone have any information or photographs of the Roneotype No.1 that may assist me with its restoration?
