This typer got wet in a flash flood. I cleaned and oiled it, then I sprayed it with rust color. It looks interesting now and it works almost perfect!
Status: Typewriter Hunter
Actually working with computers in my professional life I take the old mechanics as a compensation. I prefer machines manufactured before WWII, but I don't despise beautiful and good working typewriters from the fifties and sixties like e.g. the Olympia Splendid.
