Unfortunately, the Smith Premier No. 4 typewriter is out of commission for now. It got a good workout for the 2017 NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) considering it is 116 years old. Yes, you read that correctly, it is one hundred and sixteen years old. It performed admirably. It was nice to see the attention that the SP-4 got when I took it to the write-ins. I had no trouble with typing on it and most people liked to hear the typewriter going as I typed as well as the bell at the end of each line. I will miss using it for the time being.
However, it isn’t the only typewriter that I own. For the remainder of NaNoWriMo, I am going to use my Olympia SG-1. As I haven’t given this machine a workout yet, it is a good time to bring it into the rotation.
