American wide-bodied jumbo typewriter. Takes PS printwheels as well as 10, 12 and 15 pitch. Best of all is the keyboard. It sounds as if it's been mounted on a Caribbean steel drum!
For the instruction guide, see my blog link.

Typewriter enthusiast, Perth Western Australia. I began collecting typewriters in order to spend less time in front of a computer. Yeah, like that worked... !!
