|The Oliver 9 volunteered to provide scale for the IBM Model C Executive.|
Thanks for introducing yourself oh mighty and solidly built IBM Executive! I am impressed with the engineering and build quality that went into your making. Even the hood hinge assembly is solid and operates in an understated, yet competent manner. This is just a quick post before we say goodnight, so how some more size comparisons?
|Simply massive and has density approaching that of a black hole in spite of the aluminum housing.|
|When encased, the Roxy/Rooy almost fits underneath the IBM.|
I am looking forward to receiving and installing a new platen and power roll. It won't operate like it did in 1965, but the fact that it runs at all is a mark of good industrial design.
Oops! I forgot that the Roxy has never had a proper introduction. Well, there is plenty of time left in the 2013 International Typewriter Appreciation Week!
