Looking under the hood of a 1923 Underwood 3-Bank

     First let me say that it did not occur to me to take pictures while I had the base removed from the Underwood.  It was early in the morning and I was amazed at the amount of dust that was inside of the machine (enough to make a mouse very happy).  I was in a state of panic when I discovered that my first efforts to correct problems made things worse.  

     One good thing about buying from a charity is that the people who profit from the sale deserve to. I have no feelings of being ripped off… (it was a donated item… duh!) the price was cheap… the machine functions… looks good and in time I will learn enough to fix it or have it fixed.  So it is win-win.  (Gerald)

  1. Richard: I agree this is a great typewriter. It’s like a person with a limp… in time they get where they are going and this typewriter gets the page full… just takes a little more time and effort.
