*Refurbished Green Smith-Corona Super Sterling Typewriter with Warranty
I just finished refurbishing this Smith-Corona Super Sterling Typewriter. I did take a few more photos of the process so you can see what goes into cleaning each machine. On this particular machine, I:
Removed typewriter body to allow for thorough cleaning of all parts.
Used a solvent to clean all mechanics and remove old lubricant, dirt, dust, and grime.
Cleaned each slot in the type segment.
Cleaned the type slug for better print quality.
Cleaned the platen and feed rollers to improve paper feeding.
Re-lubricated the machine according to professional standards.
Checked all adjustments (Red/Black color selector, type alignment, tabulator, margin set left & right, backspace, margin release, line lock, tab set & clear).
Polished chrome and key tops.
Cleaned carrying case and lubricated hinges and lock.
As far as the general condition of the typewriter goes, it's in good shape. Like most vintage machines, it has a few marks and paint chips here and there but nothing too terrible. You'll notice a mark on the front of the space bar. I may try lightly sanding that to see if it will smooth out. The transparent card guide shows some imperfections. I polished it but was unable to make them 100% perfect.
The platen has seen some use but still has some life in it. The print is fine and it does not punch holes in the paper when typing like hard platens tend to do.
Comes with original carrying case (Hard-sided) and a new typewriter ribbon. Of course, I guarantee it to be fully functioning for 6 months from date of sale excluding abuse, neglect, accidental damage.
