This crafty portable was brought in by one of our dedicated collectors (along with another portable). This poor thing has a litany of items; right ribbon spool is stuck, three keys stick badly, and it is filthy with years of pencil eraser debris everywhere in the components. A multi-step clean was required first with compressed air and several degreasing and re-oiling events. The right spool finally cleared and we were able to get it moving. It is a slow battle getting the remaining keys aligned. The Skywriter is a mid 1950’s model.
