I really shouldn't have bought this, but I did, and now it is my responsibility. No case, bent frame, bent ribbon cover, grime, skipping, and a messed up type basket are just some of the issues this machine has. It's still better than it was at first- believe it or not, the return lever was bent vertically. It still doesn't work, unsurprisingly.
But hey, brown QDL!
Platen knob removed for repairs, I still have it...
Pay no mind to the satanic WD-40 on my shelf, it is reserved for the ribbons themselves : )
