Score One for the Home Team
Post-Script: I know better than to pick up machines from thrift stores that are in less than pristine condition, for to do so means to burden oneself with another fixer-upper, that might need a level of service beyond my ability. And so one has to be picky, ensuring the machine's condition is thorough vetted prior to purchase. There's also the issue that good machines at a cheap price are harder to find. So today's find is especially worthwhile, especially considering the high regard these SCM Galaxy Twelve's hold in the eyes of many typewriter aficionados more learned than myself.
