1979 IBM Selectric II Serial # 26 3875341 1979 IBM Selectric II typewriter, Serial # 26 3875341 Michael Hoehne's 1979 IBM Selectric II typewriter. 2017-05-10 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Michael Hoehne: 1979 IBM Selectric II Serial # 26 3875341 Very nice looking Correctable Selectric II. OTOH, it doesn't work---every key repeats after I release the key, two repetitions or 80+. I'm sure someone here will tell where the works have to be ungummed.... No type sample 'til then. The type ball is unmarked(!)

Odd, no part number on the cartridge. Must be a third-party replacement. That installation diagram is pretty useful, huh?

While I find all of mankind's inventions interesting, I am most enchanted by the human-scale arts and devices, the ones that can be created (and repaired) in a home workshop or studio; the ones that can be understood by looking at them; the ones that do something useful or stir admiration. Typewriters work for me.
