*Refurbished Blue Torpedo Model 18 Typewriter with Warranty
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: firstname.lastname@example.org
Comes with a new ribbon installed and a 6 month warranty on parts and labor! Also, the original carrying case is included.
(Allow for additional turnaround time).
For an additional $100, you'll receive a platen that has been freshly recovered with new rubber.
