|This was my first Hermes 3000 Techno Pica typewriter|

The Hermes could use a cleaning. It works fine without the card guide, but without the guard it is impossible to align a line of type to correct. It is also difficult to correctly align the paper, but can be done by aligning the ends.
The SCM below never really made it into my collection. It is a fine typer and fairly clean. The left carriage release plastic lever is missing. Other than that it is complete and works fine. I like this machine, but it is one too many so it goes to ???? I want to make room for older typewriters and those that are on my wish list like a Mill.
|This SCM Sterling is presently on its way to a typosphereian|
and this one is the next one I am thinking of passing on.
