1926 L.C. Smith 8 Serial # 624566-10 1926 L.C. Smith 8 typewriter, Serial # 624566-10 Kenneth Kruschka's 1926 L.C. Smith 8 typewriter. 2018-10-15 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Kenneth Kruschka: 1926 L.C. Smith 8 Serial # 624566-10 Picked this up a while back, have now collected all the parts I should need to fix this. The LH platen knob is from a Royal Parade portable, the original knob broke, had to replace it with something. There is broken teeth on the track and on the gear, will need to replace both. The original draw-band is shot, got a good used one. Last, but not least, Ted Munk's TMTRB, thanks to the L.C. Smith mainspring and drawband (pg.72) and main carriage (pg.66) it has a shot at life. Just getting it in the Database, though the current state is non-working--I've replaced the feet and two decimal tab bars that were missing underneath so far. Update 10/15/2018 I sold this typewriter to a lady who's a home decorator; she is going to use it as a prop. She said she had one like it as a kid and knew all about the functions of this machine--making the showing of this typewriter an easy sale.

After finding a Smith-Corona Coronet 12 at a curb-side (in Winter while walking the dog) I carried it home; after it thawed out and started coming back to life I was hooked. My interest in this hobby lead to taking two parts typewriters to create one good unit. This typewriter aliment is (pretty much) in-curable!
