The Typewriter Database 197X SCM Sterling Electric 12 Serial # SL23536 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Brian Brumfield: 197X SCM Sterling Electric 12 Serial # SL23536 An onerous collection of brittle plastics, flimsy typebars and other metal brackets, with dubious post-spaceshot 1970's styling ... The worst of two worlds colliding. Hideous.
This machine was purchased to make use of the extensive set of replaceable typeface slugs & key caps that we have.
No carriage roller release. No carriage lock.
It may just find it's way to a thrift store shelf in the near future.

I love machines, machining, creating things from nothing. Typewriters have struck a romantic chord in me, thanks to my oldest son, and I am working with him and the rest of our family to acquire, restore, repair many machines.
Our collection grows in fits and spurts - as the seasons change. We make a lot of acquisitions at estate sales, yard and garage sales, thrift stores, online, and through personal connections.
The machines that we don't want to keep in our own collection, we are selling through various outlets - Etsy, Square Market, and eventually on eBay - and unlike some sellers, we KNOW how to pack a machine for shipment! :-)
Brumfield & Sons Typewriters, at your service.
