care for your typewriter.

care for your typewriter. my Underwood Finger-Elite turned out to be a debacle‚ as you might have read, the carriage return lever is severely broKen‚ the carriage has erratic errors and I also discovereä that the tab set arm is broken (a tiny tip has broken off)‚ but at least I got a manual with it - ior l CHF I don't want to complain. And this Handbuch, as we call it in german‚ includes a good advice: "clean your typewriter's typeslugs every evening" That makes sense. If we use a brush every evening to clean away the leftover inx and dirt, we possibly don't neeä to get out the toothpicks that often. And one thing is great about the defective Underwood‚ its typeslugs are perfectly clean. maschinengeschrieben blogspot Olympia SM—5 com

That is a great tip. It probably won't happen in my house, but it is nonetheless good advice.

Good advice.
I just finished cleaning my Studio 44, he's got nice and shiny type slugs now.

Never leave behind such a cheap typewriter -- at worst, it can provide hundreds and hundreds of useful parts!

Am I the only one who thinks that, the more defects in a typewriter, the more character it has?

That's a great advice! But I'm way to lazy to follow it. When I finish typing I just shove the typewriter back in its case... And that's why I find my self so many times using a toothpick instead of a brush.
