Semi-Automatic is a blog produced by Christopher Ryan of northern Massachusetts as a forum to post about his various interests, but it’s mostly about manual typewriters. Maybe a little photography here and there. Enjoy.

    I tried commenting on one of your posts but it didn’t seem to work, so I’ll try here since it’s the only way I know how to contact you!

    I’m the one who does the Philosophothought blog and you said you might have a working S-C 5TE you could send me for the cost of shipping. I would love that because it’s one of the typewriters on my short list! Please email me at

    Thank you very very much for offering. 🙂 It made my day.

    I’m a collector that buys extras for cleanup and resell. I have some new additions that you might to secure for your collection.

    (2) Olympia SM3, working, pristine
    (4) Olympia SM9, working, each represents the three different editions of the SM9
    (1) Olympia SG1, sage green, very nice
    (1) Olympia SG3, white and gray, pristine, majestic
    (1) Hermes 3000 seafoam green, very nice

    I am in Los Angeles so if you would want to add one of more to your collection for more than want there would need to be a crate and protective packaging but it can be accomplished.

    All best,
