1950s Smith-Corona Clipper
This Smith-Corona Clipper from the 1950s is only currently useful as a decoration. The carriage drum is frozen, and doesn't wind at all. The carriage string is attached to both the drum and the carriage, but the drum doesn't do anything to work. Thus, the typewriter performs as it has a broken carriage string. The repair would probably involve taking apart the carriage drum and probably doing something to replace the mainspring. Currently, it's not something I have time to investigate, so here it is. The typewriter needs a thorough cleaning, a new ribbon. (takes universal ribbons) Also keep in mind that this typewriter does not have a case to go with it.
