even though it has a big old ding on the top and now sadly has a broken mainspring. I got to type one small page of text with this machine before it decided to die on me. But it isn’t allowed to die. Little did this machine suspect it would end up as a drawing typewriter (I used it to type the clouds yesterday). Since I don’t have the tools or the inclination to take on a busted mainspring it will be this way for a while until I can bear to part with it and send it off to Typewriter Spa.
