Not so sure it was a worthwhile purchase now that the true state of the machines is visible, but definitely 'projects'.
Yesterday acquired a batch of three typewriters that should last me for a while to tinker with to get them fixed-up and usable. They are all pre-war portables and actually neat machines of themselves. They'll be kept in storage for a while, to be taken-up as projects over the coming winter (or following summer...). But already some pictures of the three as purchased:
First the Mercedes Prima portable typewriter.
