198X Smith Corona Electra XT Serial # 3LRU380818 198X Smith Corona Electra XT typewriter, Serial # 3LRU380818 Jacob Gilliam's 198X Smith Corona Electra XT typewriter. 2018-09-10 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Jacob Gilliam: 198X Smith Corona Electra XT Serial # 3LRU380818 I got this one so that my son (2 years old) could have some fun doing something daddy was doing without destroying linkages. Well, I don't know 2-year-olds very well, 'cause I could mess this up faster than I could see it happening. He really does like holding the power space and then hitting return. "It tickles!" he says. It's a fine enough typewriter if you remember it's not a computer keyboard.

I am a student, father, and metrologist (gauges, not weather), Dungeon Master and typewriter tinkerer extraordinaire! I've only been at collecting and fixing since August 2018, but I already am a more confident person. I have learned a great deal from many of the wonderful resources available on the Internet, and I've met a lot of awesome people in my travels! Hopefully some folks can say the same about me!
