Weapon of Choice: “Easy” 1964 Hermes 3000. Less than half that, actually. ‘Cept maybe certain models that will likely require extra parts (A sort of “kit” including all the bits you should replace while you’ve got it skinned, IYKWIM).The H3k ones are pretty straightforward, though and will be on the cheaper side..
Early set of Corona 4 feet. These are a day older than the H3k and SM3 feet, so testing is a bit further on these, and they seem good.

Nice work, Ted!
Another valuable service from the Rev!
I’ll need about half a dozen sets for each of the first 2 versions of the H3k, and just wait until I get to the rest of my collection.
Well I’ll be mint-green with envy. That’s some fine work! I didn’t realize you could cast rubber, so that is certainly a game changer. Molds = productivity, for sure.
I’ve been tinkering around with molding some typewriter accessories that are harder to come by to make replicas, but you’ve inspired me to really go at it.
Very nifty! Any chance of Hermes Rocket feet and such? Will you sell me some baby parts, oh Reverend? (^_^)
Darn! My brother-in-law, a dentist, gave me an old vacuum pump he kept when he retired. I couldn’t find anyone who wanted it, so let it go the landfill when they demolished by old house. Maybe some dental supply house has a used one at a good price. Good Luck, and nice work.
Sorry to post on this old topic, but did you ever end up offering these for sale? I just got a 1959 Hermes 3000 that would like some new green shoes!
I made a few, but they’re black now. That’s what people wanted. (:
The minty green looked awesome!
yuh, I made some “Wizard Smoke” silver/maroon ones for my grey/maroon SM3, but it became clear that consistently matching colors from batch to batch would be a problem.
