Working Portable Typewriter – New Ribbon, Case
London Typewriters offer for sale a working portable typewriter.
This typewriter works well and the keys type effortlessly. All of the mechanisms work as intended and there is a strong ‘ding’ sound at the end of each line.
The machine is fitted with a repeat spacer key, allowing the typist to move the carriage quickly rather than pressing the space bar.
Also, the user is able to adjust the strength of touch required for the keys by making them lighter or harder during the typing process, to meet the typist’s personal touch preferences.
The wide carriage (32cm) allows for typing in a landscape format in addition to normal portrait format.
It comes with a new black ink ribbon installed and the typewriter is ready for action straight out of the box. Also, it comes with a case which has a comfortable handle.
Overall condition of the typewriter is good. Minor signs of age and use are present. Please note there is a slight misalignment on paper when typing – please refer to photos.
This typewriter would be ideal for young typists as a starting point. It would also be suitable for typists who require a light key action when typing.
