The E typeslug is loose. I attempted to fix it with JB Weld which didn't work.

I will add a type specimen and link when I get it fixed. It's a brilliant machine and would be worth professional attention

I started collecting typewriters in 2006, but what started it all was using my mother's Brother Student-Riter XL1 in 2004. The next year I received my grandma's Smith-Corona Silent, which was enough to hold me over for a little while but eventually led to an obsession with manual portable typewriters.
