When I was a kid I received this typewriter so I could practice at home because we had typing class in 7th grade.
All manual. We used paper correction paper, kind of like the dry correction pens - there was no liquid paper. That's when you placed the slip of paper onto the roller in front of the wrong letter - and you had to hit the same key to white out the wrong letter.
Manual carriage return - that means at the end of the sentence you hit the arm which took you to the next line.
You also had to feed the ink ribbon yourself. A mess.
In high school I got an electric typewriter with a correction ribbon and ink cartridge - thank goodness.
Had things not changed, I would have saved to buy the king of kings, the IBM Selectric. Admins and secretary's couldn't live without them.
I'm wondering if I can still type on one. I wonder if you have never used one and learned on a computer board, could you type on one?
The keys seem so close together.
