Originally, these had a plastic tab to protect the case from being scratched by the carriage return handle. This replacement I used is a bit big, but its grey.  What you can see next to it is light not a scratch.  Mine is in surprisingly good shape.

Never seen this before, oiling the platen bearings (where are they?) and oiling the line spacing lever, which is actually the carriage return handle as per the instructions, not the lever that changes to say 1,2,3 spacing.

Typewriter collector, previous sewing machine collector.

Originally from the Garden of England, Kent. I have lived in Sheffield for over fifteen years.

As a young child, I always enjoyed taking things apart and seeing how they functioned.

I have been collecting a range of vintage typewriters for over two years.

Previously, I was interested in restoring sewing machines, then I acquired my mothers Olivetti Dora and looked under the hood and typed, I was hooked on typewriters and how they worked.

I learn something every day from passionate bloggers and typewriter enthusiasts.

Fan of Joe Van Cleave's typewriter video series.
