Re: The American Gallery

Case work is very enjoyable & therapeutic and what I dreamed of during the last 10 years in some "cubicle farm" in my previous Corporate life.

I have 2 Olympia "banded" cases in the works right now.


With the S-C case, I was surprised to not see 2 metal pivot pins in the plastic where they rotate in the aluminum housing. 

18.2 lbs of machine inside the case with all plastic handle hardware.

I made a final adjustment to the blue of the space bar.  Went with a bit deeper hue...Krylon calls this colour "Lagoon Blue".

I also added a red Tab key-top from a parts Olivetti-Underwood 21 machine.

thanks!
I was surprised that it only needed to be cleaned inside and out, then light servicing. It works great and I've typed whole letters with it without flaws (except for operator error).  The font is a little smaller than "elite" 12 cpi. I guess fonts were not standardized back then.
