Once a rust bucket brought back from the depths of hell itself, this machine could not properly type when I acquired it. It just so happens I acquired it at the beginning of my typewriter collecting, so I did not have the knowledge necessary to properly repair it, and I botched the job so badly I shoved it in a closet for two years. But I have redeemed myself, and Vilhelm now sits proudly on my desk.
The only issues are the backspace not working, and shifting still being a bit iffy since someone some time ago smashed the carriage basket.
