"I am often asked how radio works. Well, you see, wire telegraphy is like a very long cat. You yank his tail in New York and he meows in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? Now, radio is exactly the same, except that there is no cat." : Albert Einstein

Oliver: Please sir, may I have some more?
This is my Oliver Model 3. The type bars need some work at the moment and one key needs to be replaced but the rest of the mechanism is working well. WD40 works wonders on rust frozen parts as long as you go back and oil them properly afterwards, it is no replacement for oil as it will soon evaporate away.
I think the Oliver may have suffered from an impact on the top in shipping. I'll have to remove the type bar supports and look at the best way of truing everything up.
