I wasn't planning on taking this massive 18 in. carriage Underwood standard, but after hearing the shop owner remark that it had "nice keys for jewelry", I forked over the $25. It has multiple major issues, but it's all there and the satisfaction of making it work again will be worth every penny I paid for it!
I've gotten everything to move now. The carriage rails were so gunked up I had thought the drawband was broken, because the carriage never moved unless I pushed it. Lots of cleaning and lubrication got a small section of the carriage to work, but big enough to get a sample.
Amazingly, this monster is CARRIAGE SHIFTED. Luckily for me, the shift assist springs (that what they are called?) are very very strong so the shift is actually quite nice!
Nickname: Paul Bunyan, of course!
Now, if only I could find a massive blue typewriter...

RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Underwood S on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Underwood Serial Number page and the Underwood S By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
