outdoor public typing

strange- the keys were so dirty the letters were hard to see but otherwise one of the cleanest i've ever bought. and it types laser-straight!

Made in Japan

an exploded view in a typewriter manual?

Snohomish type-in

Numerous recent typewriter ads are by the same seller and end this way:
 "I have other typewriters for sale and you can use my number to view them. Ribbon for this machine is easily available. I also repair typewriters so keep me in mind if you need one fixed. No charge if I can’t fix it. Call Jim"
and a phone number.  typically they are listed in NE Seattle.  I'm thinking of calling him about a machine.  If I do so, should I invite him to the type-in with some of his wares or are we trying to be more social and use oriented?
With Ryan's RSVP I'll bring the Chinese machine if he thinks he can get it home ok.  It's lightweight plastic.

SCM 88 1953

royal 10 AZERTY - update!

this one is at the same shop as the SCM 88.  He has it marked at $250, which puts it far out of my interest, especially since I already have a Royal 10.  But it is pretty and I thought you'd like to see it.  It has the two-pane side windows like my own, indicating an earlier model.
They are advertising this one on craigslist - here's the listing:

they still want too much for it though.
