When I got this it looked nice, but it didn't shine. An (I won't say quick because it took me an hour) application of oil to the smooth surfaces brought the true beauty back to this machine.
A Voss question—I have noticed both with this and the gullwing Voss I owned a few years ago that when using a brand new well-inked ribbon, there is some smearing of ink on the page. I do not experience this problem with very many typewriters using my ribbons, but it plagued both Vosses I've owned. Is this a known thing?
