Just ordered some ribbon cartridges as an early birthday present to myself. It appears to need a little restoration (cleaning, oiling, may need to fix the platen).

I do enjoy fixing machines simple enough that I can figure out their logic just by looking at them. I’ve fixed many a bicycle in my short time as a mechanic at the antique market, but this will be my first typewriter.
