Originally owned by USAF pilot and aircraft engineer who was a principal designer of the SR-71 jet engines.
When I acquired this machine, many keys would fail to advance the carriage; I added thin brass sleeves (tubes) to each linkage in order to fix the problem.

I'm the proud owner of a small collection of ten typewriters (thus far), all collected with the intent of being used. I also am a prolific blogger, usually written with the aid of a typewriter. http://joevancleave.com/
RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Hermes Rocket on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Hermes Serial Number page and the Hermes Rocket By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
