Smith-Corona Sterling 1949

coron-sterlingdsc_0586dsc_0587dsc_0588dsc_0589dsc_0590dsc_0591dsc_0592I stated using these cork squares for a non-slip pad under my typewriters. it works pretty good and I got 3 of them at the thrift store for 1.00.  I‘m sure n old cork board of any kind would work. Also I discovered the Question mark key arm was disconnected( luckily not broken) I was able to reconnect it and it seems all good now. cheers!

Found this yesterday at a local antique store. Marked too high for me. went in this morning and was able to get them to go down a good amount after looking at condition. the wooden platen rod freespining under the rubber. also needs some new rubber washer feet.  My wife went down later in the day and picked it up for an early Valentines gift! really dig this machine and looking forward to getting it fixed up. Thanks Babe.
