Re: Possible Acquistions Thread

So what are your thoughts about this particular model?

Re: Possible Acquistions Thread

I can't speak to that model specifically, but any noiseless is, as mentioned, a pretty complicated mechanism and hard to work on -- though you may be skilled and patient enough to figure them out! I would definitely want to test the machine thoroughly before buying it.

Any noiseless has a different typing feel from a regular typewriter, and requires a different typing technique -- more of a harder, more deliberately firm touch, in order to overcome the lower momentum of the typebar mechanism. You may try it and decide you don't like it.

It looks nice, the keys are working, but the problem is in the ribbon avance mechanism, it doesn't seem to work and the ribbon covers are missing.

And I guess is not a model 4 but a model 1? Nice to look at, pretty old but needing some good love :-)
