1977 Sears Achiever Serial # L71773543 1977 Sears Achiever typewriter, Serial # L71773543 James Grooms's 1977 Sears Achiever typewriter. 2024-06-10 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of James Grooms: 1977 Sears Achiever Serial # L71773543 This one had multiple issues and some enterprising typewriter mechanic felt that a liberal application of a heavy grease would do the trick. It also sports one last tab holding the cover on, so it was a prime candidate, like so many, for the dumpster.



She's a competent typewriter and if it was in a shiny skin you'd pay a premium for one. Here is your roof top inspirational typer. Have one too many, forget it, drop it in some hot tar resin and mostly likely it will still be there when you return to retrieve it.

As with many, the bug is back there somewhere due to an Underwood No. 5. My grandfather was on a small town school board and used one for this. My parents had a yellow Royal Safari that I used to index card everything, including a beer can collection. Collection syndrome clue! The long dormant tic was activated when my neighbors left a Remington Quiet Riter on the curb when they moved in circa 2010, Yes a believe it or not story is next, when a Hermes 3000 comes home with the girlfriend from work for free. Yes, free! From there the addiction is full steam. And yes, I now have a No. 5. Typewriters are the perfect blend of using one's technical skills, history and functional purpose.
