1933 Woodstock 5N Serial # N347456 1933 Woodstock 5N typewriter, Serial # N347456 Nathan S's 1933 Woodstock 5N typewriter. 2020-12-15 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Nathan S: 1933 Woodstock 5N Serial # N347456 This is a very rough Woodstock. I bought this in Milwaukee, WI. When I got this machine, it only had 1/3 of the rubber left on the platen. What was left was harder than a rock and shattered when I dropped it on the floor. I recovered the platen of this machine with heat shrink. It wasn't too hard to do, but it is very hard and should only be used as a last resort. This machine was not worth an expensive new platen, so I figured I'd test the heat shrink method for myself.

Note the "Rebuilt by Woodstock Typewriters" sticker on the side. It's about half gone, but it's still hanging on!
