1979 IBM Selectric II

Serial #26 3875341

Odd, no part number on the cartridge. Must be a third-party replacement. That installation diagram is pretty useful, huh?

Very nice looking Correctable Selectric II. OTOH, it doesn't work---every key repeats after I release the key, two repetitions or 80+. I'm sure someone here will tell where the works have to be ungummed.... No type sample 'til then. The type ball is unmarked(!)

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.
