This big lunker of a L.C.Smith Standard #8 typewriter from the Year 1918 is a customers.
In for major clean up, a new platen, new paper rollers, new feet and removing decades of decrepitude.
This baby had a heavy layer of shellac which remarkably saved the decals.
Of course that stuff was smeared over much of the internals. Fortunately denatured alcohol works its wonder.
All in all a nice gift for a typewriter enthusiast.
