THE TYPEWRITER AS I GOT IT - BEFORE CLEANING
The ribbon looks worse than it is. Cleaned the spools, sprayed a bit of WD40 over the whole lenght of the ribbon, and it's doing its job beautifully!
I individually clean the keytops one by one. I'm not afraid of getting dirty when I set up the machine, but I want my fingers to remain clean while typing!
AFTER A QUICK CLEANING AND READY TO TYPE!
