Bought this from the original owner who hadn't used it much. Came in a big, hard, durable grey plastic case which does a great job of protecting it. Apparently these machines don't age well just sitting around, though. I replaced the drive belt (first with a produce elastic, and then with a real belt ;) ), and cleaned off a lot of joints which were sticking. I'm not sure why it needed this given its lack of use, I figure some of the original factory lubrication must have just gummed up over time. Very similar to the 565, the only difference I see is the powered carriage return on this model. It returns fast and HARD! Except for a very enthusiastic space bar, it types wonderfully. Made by Nakajima according to the knowledgeable folks on the FB group who provided me with great advice and suggestions.
