This Smith-Corona Silent-Super customer machine came to the shop for a new platen and a good cleaning. It had been previously been spray oiled and the type bars were all gummed up. I “love” these oiled machines.
It takes several degreasing steps to get everything unwound. After the third degrease cycle the type bar rest disintegrated so I replaced it with new hard felt.
And then adjusting several type bar links, again this guy types nice.
I really like the type face Numode #61.
