SC Coronamatic Super 12

I just received replacement carts for inking up pages with the Smith-Corona Coronamatic Super 12.  Yep, in the 70s and 80s, everything ended with ‘matic’ – much like now, everything starts with ‘i’.

Having cleaned it up a bit and getting the engine revved up after decades of neglect, I gotta say; not too shabby.

Two-tone brown, how positively MOR.  Note the prominent POWER RETURN.  Be prepared to catch the machine as it flies across the table!

    • It’s a dramatic change in feel from a manual, and the typebar machines hum fairly loudly. Daisy wheel machines are much quieter. I like having some functioning electrics in the collection though.
