Check out this beautiful blue Model 18 Torpedo Typewriter!

It's been professionally refurbished!  Some say these machines are the FASTEST manual typewriter they've used.

Here are a few of the items that have been done:

  • Platen cleaned
  • Machine mechanics cleaned by hand with solvent
  • Lubricated machine with 100% synthetic oil, by hand
  • Sprayed mechanics with a light oil to prevent oxidation
  • Adjustments checked (line spacing, red/black ribbon setting, type bar trip, type alignment, backspace, tabulator, ribbon reverse, variable line finder, shift lock, paper release lever)
  • Type slugs cleaned by hand
  • Machine has been fully tested
  • New black ribbon installed
  • Hard carrying case cleaned and lubricated
  • Applied museum-grade wax for protection

 It does need a platen upgrade.  The original platen has hardened over time.

If you have any questions about this machine, don't hesitate to contact me.  Email:  info@kytyper.com

Comes with a new ribbon installed and a 6 month warranty on parts and labor!  Also, the original carrying case is included.
