KJF, Be careful abut rebuilding typewriters taht seem to be too far gone. I have a collection of 9 or 10 H3k typewriters because I’d buy terrible looking for parts only, seized, and not working typewriters. They are now some of my best looking and operating typewriters. Oh, and for the other junkers I bought? Don’t tell Mrs. M how close to 100 the collection has once again become.
I remember those folding wash lines from yesterday. If they are what I think they are many people in my coal mine town had them and so did the people in the suburbs near the city.
