Bringing the machine back to life.

The typewriter cost me $15.50 on EBay.  It arrived running sluggish clearly from years of storage.  A good cleaning and oiling put that right in about an hour.  Only one tension spring was missing.  It connects to the margin release button.  It was easily fixed using a rubber band.  I found and ordered a tension spring for $2.25 for the permanent fix.  A new ribbon completed the maintenance.
