Never say never… when a Oliver 5 is concerned.

Two years ago I bought an Oliver (Bat Ear) typewriter and it was a major disaster in my collecting career.  Paid to much for a hunk of rust.  I obtained parts, bought a manual and watched You-Tube video’s regarding repair.  Then one very hot day… I had the carriage removed wanted to put it back on and like a square peg; made things worse than when I started.  So I said never again.  Then this one came my way… works sort of… I used my Everest to post (fitting).
