Sears Chieftain – Smith Corona Skywriter
Royal Futura with new paint job
Does Sears still fix 50 year old typewriters?

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.
Good tip, thanks Bill
