NEW Selectric Dust Covers

Every Selectric needs a good vinyl cover to protect it from dust and spills when it's not in use. Over time, they get ripped, damaged and lost. If you have been looking, you know how hard it is to find one since IBM/Lexmark discontinued them over 15 years ago. I always supply a new cover with machines that I refurbish as I think a good cover is a necessity. After searching and searching with no luck, I decided to have some made.

These covers are made from black frosted vinyl with sewn seams at the edges just like IBM did. The only thing different is there is no IBM logo (I wouldn't want to get in trouble with the lawyers, ha).

Patterned after original IBM covers, these fit Selectric I, II and III models perfectly. I currently have them in the wide (15" platen) and medium (13" platen) sizes. If I get enough requests, I can get some made for the small (11" platen) machines.

Fresh, NEWLY MANUFACTURED duplicate of IBM 1204635 dust cover. Soft, supple and strong.
NOT old stock that has hardened from sitting around for years. NOT some universal cover that doesn't fit.

I have them for sale on ebay.$29.95 with FREE SHIPPING

There are three sizes of Selectric Typewriters. Double check your measurements before ordering.

Red Selectric II with Correction SOLD

Check out this beautiful dark Red Selectric II with Correction. It has received my full reconditioning process, including a full chemical wash, replacement of high-mortality parts and complete re-lubrication with synthetic grease and oil that won't harden and gum over time. New noise-reducing foam has been installed in the factory locations to make this machine perform like new.

Smooth and quiet, this machine is quick and responsive. The keyboard touch is fantastic. That's the real draw of the Selectric. No other machine or keyboard can match the feel of a Selectric.

Cleaned inside and out, platen and feed rollers resurfaced, adjustments checked and a new ribbon and correction tape installed.


Fully tested and ready to go. Comes complete with extra ribbon, extra correction tape and NEW DUST COVER. A truly beautiful machine that is a joy to use. One-year guarantee on everything. Although I'd rather you pick it up in person, I can ship it for an extra fee.

Send me an email with questions. My contact information is in the "about me" section.
