  1. Nice looking machine. The near-perfect output and the wonderful keyboard are the reasons they were loved by millions. They were designed to be dependable office workhorses that were used everyday. Enjoy!

    • Thank you for your comment. I fully agree with you except for the keyboard. From the 3 IBMs I own (a Selectric II, a Model D Executive and the Selectric III) the two older ones really have wonderful keyboards, but this is unfortunately not the case for the Selectric III: it just feels quite cheap (or modern…) compared to the others. This is one of the major reasons I have kept the Selectic II, even if I’m not yet shure if I will manage to get it working.
