My first "Gentle Giant". The carriage operates properly, like the tabulators. Part of keyboard is clogged, due to rust. I can not buy Vapo-Rust in Argentina, they have no representative here and is hard to bring by plane a one gallon can in order to submerge the giant all nigth.
I keep looking for a solution.
The typewriter is light enough to use, despite its massive presence.
