Underwood No.4 Repair And More!

A 1902 Underwood No.4 in very good condition now.



The linespace selector is on the side of carriage end cover.

The ribbon reverse is a lever below the advance wheel.

The smaller keyboard looks a little strange.


This 1936 Corona Special is indeed special.

The touch control is on the side of machine.

You can see why people call this the tuxedo model.

I'm warming up to typing on these Underwood Noiseless Portables.


Agent Eugene approves of this 1929 Remington No.3

Needless to say, I'm keeping this machine for myself.





This is one of my favorite stickers.


This tag is nailed to the faceplate. Wow!

Dig That Crazy Script


1954 Smith Corona Silent-Super. Just a ordinary machine till you type.

I always tell people to check the typestyle when looking for machines.

1944 Groma Model N was shipped over from Germany.

Looks great even with bad shipping damage.


These Royal Model P machines circa 1930 simply glow.


These mid-late 60's SCM Galaxie II are great typers and extremely repairable.




Kolibri's are a popular machine on the internet. Prices are up on them.

The USSR Occupied stamp is a cool feature.

This Underwood No. 5 is a classic for a reason.




This sticker was perfectly preserved inside the carrying case.

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!
