Sticky keys and 'some maintenance required'. Should I walk away?

2021.12.09 10:16 NancysReport Sticky keys and 'some maintenance required'. Should I walk away?

Hi all,
I've been following the community for a while. Although I don't own a typewriter, I do see the appeal.
I'm looking at getting one as a Christmas gift for my wife. A Smith Corona Silent/Super Silent (not sure on the difference).
There's one I'm considering buying that looks good cosmetically and does appear to type, however, the owner says that a few keys stick and that it could do with a good lubrication and a little bit of maintenance.
The seller doesn't go into detail on what 'maintenance' means.
Should this ring alarm bells? Should I walk away from the sale? If not, is lubrication and a little bit of basic maintenance something I can carry out myself, or would I need to find a typewriter expert for that? I wouldn't want to strip the machine down and destroy it 😉
I'm struggling to find one that is in reasonable cosmetic condition and functions correctly 😛 If anyone here has one for sale, I would be very interested 😊
Thanks in advance!

Whenever I close steam, it doesn't shut down properly and afterwards all proton games don't work anymore. The solution is to delete the var folder to make it recreate so it'll work again until the next exit of steam. Does anyone have the same problem? Im running fedora kinoite.

Just got my test results back… I have a 0.6 TSH and a 1.3 T4. I’m currently on 50 mcg of Synthroid but I have not been feeling well. Do you think my medication will be adjusted? 0.6 seems borderline hyperthyroid and 1.3 is borderline hypothyroid! Very confusing.

I’m thinking of applying to a few CDC positions but I do not live in the commuting area. Is it worth it? Are they open to completely remote personnel? I applied for a few positions early in the pandemic and the group mentioned the telework policy prior to pandemic was 2 days a pp.
