moreTake classic 1960's style, combined with simple and solid mechanics, and you have the Smith-Corona Classic 12 portable typewriter. There’s nothing fancy about this typewriter, it just works. The round corners and green keys make this an inviting machine. Your fingers naturally fall into the deep cups of the keys. And when you start typing, the typebars move with a surprising lightness. After these many decades, it still works like the day it was purchased. The Classic 12 had a 12-inch carriage, with a “half space” and “power space” key, as well as a touch selector to toggle between light, medium, and heavy key strikers. The carriage return lever has a nice curve to it and sticks out far and has a big paddle on the end. When the words are flying, you can’t miss this thing, unlike other portables which tend to minimize this lever. less
