Typewriter TECHS WHERE QUALITY RESTORATION IS OUR STANDARD

Aug 2016

Smith Corona Silent Super

As a writer who needed a solid tool that would allow him to turn away from the glowing screens and their endless distractions, I did a lot of research.
I discovered what 3 models were my best bet for toughness, dependability, transparency of use, adaptability, ease of formatting and parts availability.
I culled through my local seller/service shops in L.A. and online and studied the finalists.
I took the plunge with your shop and your rebuilt 1957 Teal Blue Smith Corona Silent Super.
A new typing pad and dust cover were waiting for it.
The machine looks beautiful, inside and out. It performs even more beautifully.
Every lever, switch, rotation, tab and key clicks tightly and gently into place. The platen is a pillow.
You packed it perfectly and the packing will be saved for a future moving day.
You went to the trouble of printing and binding the original manual I had found online.
You left two indications the carriage was locked for packing and I had the words I needed to unlock it gently and properly.
Your accompanying materials were all wonderful, especially the thank you card with jellybeans and a case key attached.
Because of your craftsmanship, integrity and family business pride, this late-blooming flower of the machine age is in pristine 1957 condition and ready to write in 2016.
