This late-model SM9 represents the lowest end of the design spectrum, with plastic paper guide, no burnished metal on the paper support etc., simplified plastic carriage knobs, and a plain black case. The wide carriage is wonderful and it types beautifully however, with very clean output. It is very loud, and like my other SM9 and SG1/SG3, the space bar sounds like a Caribbean steel drum. Still a fantastic typer for churning out the pages. No chance of being distracted by the typer's character or beauty here!
Sold this happy typer Sept. 12, 2016. Got a lot of good typing done on this baby!
Status: Typewriter Hunter
From Toronto Canada. Tokyo-based entrepreneur since 1998 and meditation teacher since 2000. Learned to type in Grade 9 following mind-altering lunches and still experience flashbacks while typing. Mother did shorthand and typed 90 wpm as stenographer, dad pecked out haiku on his old typewriter as long as I remember. Moved to thermal printing, 8-character display CanoWord Pen 24 in 1986 when my typewriter broke, then to FujiXerox, Mac and iPhone. Bought my first typewriter of the new millennium (a Lettera 32) in March 2015. Muscle memory has graduated to neural reboot--every moment at the typewriter brings back fresh memories of type-happy childhood and visions of literary grandeur. Use typewriter for inspiration/rough drafts and computer/iPhone (Scrivener/Evernote) for polishing.
Came with this wonderful practice sheet. Must have been done a long time ago since the ribbon was depleted. Replaced with blue and then with black & red.
Poor focus - hence used another photo for the main image.
