Was frozen up when I got it. I cleaned it up but it still wouldn't move smoothly. Ole Kehlet found where it was binding and quickly fixed it. Even though the machine is pretty rusty after years of being stored in an attic in coastal Northern Ca., it types quite nicely.

Typewriter user since childhood--"Endofthehall Press" (produced a magazine for my big sister, I did) and avid hunter for many years. Partial to portables/ultraportables, but do love my standard models too. I use my typewriters for letters, recipes, lists, stories, pondering, and in art/fabric creations.
