The Hunt


I did fix those key tops.  Turns out that the 30's and 40's Smith-Coronas did not have celluloid or glass on the key tops.  Instead, the letter for each key is printed on some sort of vinyl-like plastic.  Fortunately, the keys from the Speedline were a perfect match for the Standard.

Also, please excuse the typos in my typecast.  I guess that's what comes from excitedly typing on a park bench.  In any event, the image has been scanned and there's no going back.

  1. Nice Machine! I'm glad you found it as Ash and I have been enjoying typing on it (or it's twin?) since your visit on Saturday morning! Thanks so much! I hope your wife was not too perturbed that you spent so much time geeking out with us.
