Alas, there are a few "craters" on Marvin the Martian's surface, presumably caused by accidental chemical contamination from the mineral spirits on the rag I used to wipe down the primed surface

Before. It's a little tricky to find the left platen knob set screws.  There are 2 and you have to flip the machine on its back to see them

A lover of the written word, I was bitten by the typewriter bug at the beginning of 2019 when I embarked on a Joyful Odyssey to track down a vintage Olympia SM 7/8/9, (I didn't know the model number at the time) that my mother had owned and which I had used to type my college applications in the late 1980's. I have acquired quite a number since, and have enjoyed learning about the history, mechanics, and true variety of these machines.
