revisiting wulf and eadwacer.

I would have preferred to polish the bell off the machine but I don’t have a long enough screwdriver to go in all the way from the opposite side of the typewriter. Brasso and wet & dry paper. Carefully, slowly turning the bell. The metal is pitted from the rust but so far it’s looking a lot nicer.
I hated the plastic body of the Lettera 82 so much I decided to leave the machine naked. The plastic body is a disgrace to the name of Lettera , and what’s more it took two of us to get it off, and once off, seemed too much hassle for too much ugly to bother getting sweaty over.
