'O' model portable, with the gull wing covers. This was on my wish list and it appeared on Craigslist locally. It's in great shape, though quite dry. I've always admired the look of this machine.
The only mechanical issue at the moment is that the return lever does not actually advance the paper unless I help it a little by turning the right platen knob . My guess is that the release button on the left platen knob is not engaging correctly when it is pushed all the way in. If anyone has a bright idea, I'm all ears.
Got it for $35. No case though. LOVE IT, yay! ~TH~
