Typewritten index card in blue ink with elite type face which reads: I spent some time yesterday working on cleaning up the SCM Smith-Corona Classic 12. It's almost in perfect shape again. There's just one issue with the escapement and space bar that requires attention. As far as I can tell everything else is working as if new.

Photo down on a wooden table covered with a brown towel on which sits a somewhat dissassembled green Smith-Corona typewriter. The case has been removed into three parts as well as the platen. Strewn around it are a variety of pliers, screwdrivers, the platen, hemostats, and screws.

      Thanks Joe! Lots of the typewriter portions are in great thanks to your work (what a lovely collection of videos on typewriters, much less the typewriters themselves). You’ve gotten me out of several jams already.
