Question about Smith Corona Wordsmith 100 Typewriter

1989 vintage Smith Corona word processing typewriter

I have given my typewriter (in great condition) to a minister friend to help him type his material. He has a condition that's affected his ability to write much with his hands. The manual is lost and I can't remember how to load the correction cassette so that I can instruct him and he hasn't been able to get it to correct. Can you help? I can't remember what model the machine is and he has it with him. Also, do you know where he can buy supplies or perhaps even a manual for this vintage machine? Thanks so much for any help you can give!!

WD40 fixes everything. Turn it upside down and follow the L - Key from the top. Then follow it to the striker key. I can't remember if they have individual return springs. Been a long time :>)

Smith corona SL480 instruction manual. I just need a manual so I know how to use the features built into the typewriter


How to Use a Smith Corona Typewriter A Smith Corona typewriter can be either a manual or electric model. Whichever model you have, the typewriter works in basically the same way. If you are familiar with a computer keyboard, you can type on a typewriter as the keys are laid out exactly the same. Unlike a computer, typing mistakes are harder to correct and, unless you use carbon paper, you will only have one copy of any document you type.

To switch fonts on this typewriter, you need to change the letter wheel. Unfortunately, there is no practical way to change the letter wheel in the middle of a document.
