An electric (obviously) wedge. Purchased from the local Salvation Army store for $14. It was in the original box with a Walmart sticker on the box. Copyright on the box and the manual reads 1992.

Interesting that the SL 480 is marked as a Corona.

I like these wedges because you can easily change the font and the pitch, the impressions are excellent, and they work quite well when typing carbons.

This one is basically in brand new shape.

Retired school teacher, now busy cooking and writing. Typewriters fascinate me, I'm mostly interested in Portables from the 50's-70's.
