About this blog

This blog is about the daily activities in a busy typewriter shop. I want to share with you the many interesting people who come in here, the beautiful machines I get and most of all the great typewriter stories that people share with me!

A Movie Set Rental

A 1938 Royal Quiet de Luxe in brown.

I really like this airplane lugguge carrying case that came with selected QDL's.

One of my personal favorites, a Corona Silent flat top model.

A 1947 Remington Noiseless Model Seven.

This machine was more fun to type on than I thought.

Using A Typewriter To Make Art

The artist rolls in long rolls of linen to type text on.

A 1942 Rooy Intermediaire 40 Portable

This machine has a funny angular profile but a great touch.

This 1938 Adler Standard got creamed in shipment but survived.

This was a nice little score on Ebay.
