Here is another customer machine and was his Smith-Corona Sterling typewriter from his college days. This typewriter was a going away to college gift and he kept it all these years.
The machine was gummed up solid with old oils and debris.
This machine was destined for the sonicator bath plus plenty of degreasing! The segment even needed to be flushed with carburetor cleaner three times before the key action returned to normal.
What I really like about this Smith-Corona is the scientific keyboard.
His parents must have really been thoughtful as they special ordered this typewriter.
Enjoy the photos.
