Re: Which new Smith-Corona in 1959 for a college-bound 18 year old?

I've been dreaming all afternoon about using that. 

I've seen references to the Galaxie but not the Galaxie Deluxe.  Is the Galaxie Deluxe the same as the Galaxie?

You've got me there. SCM kept changing models and features in the "6" series, so it may be just "name inflation." It would be an interesting and useful project for someone to note all the running changes to the Galaxie, Classic and other model lines lines during the '60s and '70s.

Acetone (used very carefully because it will dissolve paint and plastic) will remove White Out/Tippex/ Twink from rubber.  Do not get this near any plastic scales.  To clean the white from the scales, use metal polish.  We used to use Methylated Spirits (De-Natured Alcohol) for this in the trade but you cannot use it any more.  Many manufacturers now add a proportion of acetone which of course attacks most plastics.
