Here we have a pair of 1928 old Bangers that are a blast from the past!
First the segment shift L.C. Smith with ball bearing action on the type bars. This was and still is one very fast mother! In fact I do not think you will find a smoother, faster typer on the market even to this day.
Our second old Banger is a Woodstock that was made in Woodstock, Il. While she's not as fast as the L.C. Smith, this is still one tough old banger.
For some reason the Woodstock seems to take a backseat to the Underwoods and Royals. My thinking is that after being there and doing that, the reason is lack of knowledge from the consumers. Also it helps that the big boys have deep pockets for their ad campaigns touting they were #1.
This one is a very strong machine that is good for much more than show and tell.
