    Nice paint job on the Futura. Nice Skyriter also. I do not have any that new, but the ones I have will out type my Hermes Baby. Much nicer and snapier feel. Good you got the A working. Silicone, Teflon, and powdered graphite all seem to work fine in the segment without attracting dust and dirt. I’ve also taken a relay contact burnishing tool, held the sticky key up and burnished both sides of the type bar along its travel in the segment to free sticky bars.
