Silver Reed 500 Long Carriage Portable - SOLD

 

Made in 1985

The typestyle is Pica  (10 characters per inch)

I have dismantled, cleaned, lubricated and adjusted the machine for best performance.

This heavy-duty desk portable typewriter was made by Silver-Reed in Japan in 1985.  Sharing many of its working parts with the then-current Siver-Reed electric portable makes this an exceptionally sturdy manual machine.  Unusually for a portable typewriter, the S-R 500 features a 13.25 inch carriage - meaning that it will take A4 or foolscap paper sideways - ideal for scrapbooking and crafts as well as more conventional work.  It has every feature that you would expect to find on a full-size office typewriter - handy freehead for precise lining up of pre-printed forms etc., tabulator for column and paragraph work, full 44-character keyboard, automatic repeating space bar, fold-up paper rest, keyboard touch control. 

This particular machine appears to have had little use from its previous owner and is therefore still in excellent condition - ready to give many more years of reliable service.  It takes a readily available ribbon which is still in current production
