This typewriter has suffered from damp. Everything inside was covered with rust.
I soaked it in the WD-40, and then washed under a hot shower. Tabulator was damaged and i had to dismantle it. Now machine is in workimg condition, but some of rust is available.
Status: Typewriter Hunter
I'm Sergei, I was made in Russia)))))))
I wouldn't call myself a hunter - I just love typewriters, use them and collect some of them.
Many of it comes and goes out, solds to someone else, and others who "gets" me, remains)
I can't tell where I've developed a passion for typewriters. It seems that I was born with it. At least for as long as I can remember, I have always loved it. The first machine I bought in 2008. It was our, Soviet "Lyubava", a copy of "Erika". Before it, I've seen typeriters only on pictures)
