1973 IBM Selectric II

Serial #26 1148191

Before cleaning. The nest (and hidden dead stowaway) on the left, and the other decomposing occupant on the right. Ugh.

Picked up as a cheap parts machine, complete with 2 dead mice and a jumbo-sized nest in it. It actually powered on and had very minimal, basic operations. :-0

May turn out to be one of our most successful salvage jobs.

I love machines, machining, creating things from nothing. Typewriters have struck a romantic chord in me, thanks to my oldest son, and I am working with him and the rest of our family to acquire, restore, repair many machines.
Our collection grows in fits and spurts - as the seasons change. We make a lot of acquisitions at estate sales, yard and garage sales, thrift stores, online, and through personal connections.
The machines that we don't want to keep in our own collection, we are selling through various outlets - Etsy, Square Market, and eventually on eBay - and unlike some sellers, we KNOW how to pack a machine for shipment! :-)
Brumfield & Sons Typewriters, at your service.

After an initial dunk in the parts washer. The motor actually spun up, and I was able to advance the carriage.

Before cleaning. The nest (and hidden dead stowaway) on the left, and the other decomposing occupant on the right. Ugh.
