It is a very pretty design; I especially like the ribs on the platen knobs. In fact, by the end of your first page I was thinking, "Oh, good. He doesn't like it. Maybe he'll sell it to me."You're completely right about the letterspacing. It's way too much and hard to read. Nice letter shapes, though.== Michael
Well, if you're inclined, here's one that came up soon after I got this in the mail! I prefer the white but I have no need for two of them around.http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Cole-Steel-Manual-Typewriter-with-Case-Germany-/380670116861?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item58a1b503fd
I, for one, am glad to hear you love your Cole Steel. We may be the only two who actually enjoy typing on them! I happen to love the feel of the action on mine. Wish mine was that color! Thanks for sharing.
It's the sort of typewriter that, at least for me, sits there and I think "that's ok" and kind of don't use it and when I finally do I'm always pleased. For its size, it's excellent!What colour is yours?
Mine is the ugliest of the colors - a sort of bronzy-light brown mix, I suppose. I don't know what they called it: desert sand? Something like that. Still, I love the lines on it, the ingenious design and - yes - the type action.
