1977 IBM Correcting Selectric II Serial # 26 1882 184 1977 IBM Correcting Selectric II typewriter, Serial # 26 1882 184 Erik Bruchez's 1977 IBM Correcting Selectric II typewriter. 2023-11-14 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Erik Bruchez: 1977 IBM Correcting Selectric II Serial # 26 1882 184 When I got this machine, it didn't work at all. I had it serviced by Ole in Sacramento, and the machine eventually started, but it produced that infamous rattling noise: the hub was cracked.

So I decided to go with a hub replacement. Clark Hinson, on eBay, offers a hub replacement service whereby you send your arbor with hub to him, and he places a brand new aluminium hub on it.

I did the arbor/hub renewal myself, following a video by Duane Jensen on YouTube, however I didn't feel confident to install the new one, obviously a more difficult task. So Ole did it for me, and the machine now works great!

If I keep any of my Swelectrics, this will be the one: it has a beautiful blue color, and now a hub that will survive the rest of the machine.

I started collecting my first pre-WW2 standard typewriters in 2017. Since then I have added a few machines to my collection, which now ranges from the 1890s to the 1980s. As of 2020, I have more big standard (desktop) typewriters than portables, and a few standard electrics.
