Heh, the cloth-ribbon IBM Selectric doesn’t like to type on a Matte-finish paper. It’s almost like the ink gets squeezed out of the impact point and leaves something that almost passes as an outline font.
The original bushings. exactly 80 years old.
New bushings fit a bit loosely in the mount hole (I assume that the original feet fit snugly enough that you could unscrew the machine from the base and just use the rubber feet to set the machine on)
Little Jake: new platen & feed rolls, and now new feet bushings. Oughta last another 80 years, I expect.
