Oliver Model 3 arrives

Finally I have possession of a Oliver Model 3 typewriter.

It was sent on Dec 27th and arrived on Jan 12th for a total of 16 days in transit. Just as well I didn't need it in a hurry! I've had packages travel from Victoria, Australia to Texas, USA in 10 days ....

There are a few mechanical issues that need to be taken care of, mainly type bars that are binding with each other.

The photograph shows an Oliver Model 3. Its not my actual Model 3, mine is in a bit worse shape at the moment.

Hopefully I'll be able to sell a few of my other typewriters and purchase a fully restored Model 9 in the near future.

Take a look at The Oliver Typewriter Shop for examples of superbly restored machines.
