I see typewriter of your grandfather, you photographed it,, as and promised !

This typewriter is in excellent condition. is possible to work. Hello! :)

Hello vinogradik! Yes, I did photograph it just like I stated I would :)
It does work after I oiled it. Although, every once in a while it skips a space when you don't want it to. I did have trouble finding an ink ribbon. I ended up re-purposing an ink ribbon from something else and it worked just fine. Thanks for stopping by my gallery!! -fstopper

I believe I once received a letter typed on this machine by a good friend. This photo album contains some amazing photos, you must have your camera attached to you somewhere in order to get some of the shots you have.

asawfiler, how interesting! It so happens that I recall sending a letter typed on this machine to a good friend as well! I will have to admit, it took me a bit to put things together and solve the riddle! Thanks for looking through my gallery and glad you like! :) -fstopper
