1976 IBM Selectric II

Serial #26 3174467

Another IBM Selectric II with Correction that I have rescued and refurbished. It's a model 895 which means it's Dual-Pitch Correcting Typewriter with a 15" platen.

Appears to be from late 1976 or early 1977 by the date codes stamped inside the case.

During the rebuild process, I installed a new aluminum cycle clutch pulley to replace the broken one. This machine is now in tip-top shape.

What a joy to type on!

I love mechanical things and have tinkered with manual and electric typewriters since my teens. I have always been fascinated by the IBM Selectric, but it was later in life that I finally got my hands on one to explore. I learned to repair/restore them and suddenly I have several of them. I don't really consider myself a collector, but rather a restorer. I enjoy bringing old machines back to usable condition and then pass them on to other people to use and enjoy.
