Saturdays Won't Be The Same.


Chris and I at the Type-Out last fall.


1932 Royal Signet Senior in great shape.

1959 Adler Primus is an awesome typer.

1941 green Royal KMM seems weird not in black.

This Consul made in Czechoslovakia was a little tinny.


A nice paint job for a great machine.

Can't tell if this Olivetti Lettera 22 is the original finish.

This 1964 Hermes Standard 8 was so much fun to type on.

What can you say about this picture. Cute kid!

More Shop News & Dvorak Keyboard Olivetti

Easter morning in New England


This Valentine was at the first Type-In in Philly.

The print quality on this machine is amazing.

This was a difficult repair but very satisfying.


The Dvorak keyboard was a popular alternative keyboard.

One of my favorite typers.
