My recent acquisition of a 1992 Smith-Corona SL480, and a EUREKA moment. I pulled the ribbon cart out and closed the lid- noticed that the critter would still type. Hmmm… If my ribbon cart runs out while I’m in the field (with electricity), I can simply load two sheets with a carbon in the middle. True, it then becomes an invisible, but hey! I can still type! Carry those carbons folks! ~TH~
For my lady and fellow typewriter enthusiasts. Thanks to Joe VC for his recent explanation on why this aggravating skipping occurs. ~TH~
typed on an Olivetti 25 which by the way, neither skips nor jumps. ~TH~
This was puked onto the paper, and is presented here, as is – blemishes and all. I was up late last night, playing drums in a rock band, so bite me. It WAS typed though, on the 1946 Smith-Corona Clipper. 🙂
