The Oliver 3 no one seemed to want…

I had seen worse… own worse in fact.  I offered a price the seller thought was way low… but said if no one bid on it in seven days I could have it at my price.

The spools did not turn… I kept punching holes into the ribbon as I attempted to see what the problem was.  I  kept cutting off ruined ribbon… until the roll was almost done… then things began to creep and crawl and spin and turn and the next thing I knew I had a page of type … no more holes in the ribbon (what is left of it)… And the day ends with a smile!
