Wooden case is tattered and split and three links are missing in the typebar set-up; they’ll be easy to replicate with wire. Note the missing +/=. Q, and W. How the heck something deep inside such a sturdy machine could just go missing, I can’t figure out, though it might be related to all those crayon scribbles on the ribbon cover.

While I find all of mankind's inventions interesting, I am most enchanted by the human-scale arts and devices, the ones that can be created (and repaired) in a home workshop or studio; the ones that can be understood by looking at them; the ones that do something useful or stir admiration. Typewriters work for me.
