A very quirky machine. Not quite a standard, way too heavy for a portable. I love the type action on this one... the keys tilt forward! Probably not intentional, but I love it anyway.
This particular machine is a bit of a mess at the moment. I have so far reconnected the mainspring, but some seemingly important pieces are missing from the carriage so it wobbles like crazy.... I have to set the margins pretty close or I run the risk of having the carriage slide right off.
I can only type on half of the carriage, the other half is all gummed up. Once I get this all cleaned I would hope for it to be one of my go-to machines.
Although dirty, the paint and decals are in really great shape. This should clean up nicely...
Platen is an odd deep blue color.
