This one has been a real restoration project. Much of it is intact and in decent shape, and thankfully the spool covers were there. The drawband (string) was broken, much of the machine was just rusted enough to be in need of cleaning and lube. A spring was missing underneath to enable the spacebar connection to the escapement. But with a little care, a dremel tool with brass wire brush, some lubes and cleaners, it's really come back to life. I got some 60lb fishing line for a new drawband. That worked perfectly. The rollers were all flattened, so I tried something; I filled the flat spots with a layer of GOOP glue to help restore what had been flattened. Then I put some black heatshrink tubing around them. They got pretty round again and seem to work well. The platen is in good shape, fortunately.
This is a very special machine that belongs to a friend's 13 year old child. He loved the machine in its non-working condition and has never experienced it actually working. The other day in a conversation about my typewriter hobby, she pulled it out and let me take it home to see what I could do with it. I think he'll be thrilled to have a real working typer. He's a bright kid and may just freak out over the transformation.
I really like the unique typebar mechanism on these, the scissor-like way in which the typebar gets thrust forward, very different, and I guess that's part of what keeps the noise down.

I've spent my life as a mechanical and electronics tinkerer, bikes, cars, lawnmowers, appliances, cameras, audio gear, guitars, amplifiers, and pedal steel guitars. I was trained as a typist for 2 years back in the late 70's on IBM Selectric II's. At home I recall my mother having an Olympia SM3. More recently we got our daughter a typewriter for Christmas, and that somehow sparked my own personal interest in these fine and interesting machines. Now it's a habit that just won't quit. Daily searches on Craigslist, frequent trips to antique stores & malls, garage sales, etc. It's a fun and healthy addiction.
