1919 Oliver 9

Serial #882854

When I first received this, it seemed un-fixable. The carriage was jammed, the rollers flat, among other things. It was much easier to fix than it seemed, although I didn't figure out why the paper wouldn't feed until recently (a feed roller that was caked in grime wasn't moving).

An absolutely horrid machine to use. Sure, it isn't like anyone recommends Olivers for their feel, but honestly! I cannot understand how typist could spend hours at these back in the '20s.
