Hope this helps,

Need owners manual: Smith Corona SL500 Model 5A, electric typewriter. Where can one find this? Are there any that can be down loaded? Does Smith Corona even exist anymore? Thanks,

I have been unable to find a site where you can download a Smith Corona typewriter manual. However, you can try going to Will Repair Service. They carry manuals of every Smith Corona typewriter ever made, and you should be able to find a manual for your particular typewriter there. I find them to be a very helpful and trustworthy typewriter shop.


Best of luck to you! :-)
