I saw this 1959 SM3 on OfferUp for sixty bucks. It is pretty and clean, but I have enough Olympias and I don’t want to be a hoarder. I brought it to a colleague’s attention. He had picked up an SM9 a while ago. He has machines in Argentina, but could use a couple of serious writing machines in Florida. He picked up the machine, which is in excellent shape, barring a small and fleeting catch when returning the carriage. It types perfectly well, so the escapement wasn’t an issue. I took it home today to look at it. I looked carefully at the carriage. Maybe something was stuck inside? Nope. After a while I was able to determine that it was the tabulator stops catching on the back of the body. A line of paint has been scraped off. Now, I considered whether I should gently reshape the carriage, but moving the tabulator stops to the other side where the carriage clears does the job. If anyone is more certain about how to fix this issue, please let me know. My thought now is to leave it alone. The carriage moves smoothly.
