I got the trio of Brosettes all ready for pick up and this delightful Brosette typewriter from the year 1953 shows up for service. The machine itself needed the right side ribbon feed repaired. It is pretty straight forward to remove the ribbon feed assembly and repair. Then it was just some minor service.
Mostly the typewriter case needed work. New rubber feet and a new leather handle. I could not find an escutcheon that was close to the style of the Brosette, so I got permission to go ahead and do what I thought could work.
This machine lacks a bell and clapper. Like Brosette #2 (from the previous article) it also does not have a paper roller release.
What is the key board? It is QWERTY unlike the other Brosettes and has the ij character. I would guess it is a Dutch layout.
