This plastic covered Erika Daro portable typewriter is a customers brought in as the variable line spacer was not working, the paper feed also a bit wonky and the ribbon vibrator sticking. After a dip in our trusty sonicating water bath, the typewriter came out all nice and clean. The variable was frozen in the platen tube and once removed and degreased, started working. The paper tray was deformed preventing paper feeding and needed a bit of tweaking to get the paper rollers to align. The ribbon vibrator just needed a good cleaning.
The new ribbon is a snazzy black and green and this Daro puts a nice clean and crisp print on the page.
