Don't EVER Do This!

This is a very sad sight.

Don't let this happen to you.

This QDL is beautiful but smelled like a open can of gasoline.

I find many interesting home repairs on these older models.

Always Check Under The Hood

A 1955 Royal HH with Vogue typeface.

It also has one special key that I don't know what it is.

Ribbon tins are an inexpensive way start a collection.

I like the 20 cent sticker on the ribbon from F.W. Woolworth's.

Two L-32's, one from Italy and one from Spain.

I actually got two brown's in, one with Technical Elite.

A 1960's picture of a German typewriter repairman.

I get lots of these SCM changeable type keys in.

A Soldiers Typewriter

This machine has a well traveled look to it.

This picture makes me chuckle. Transporting typewriters by camel.

Sears Citation 2 is my weapon of choice, 'cause you know I love my Smith Coronas.
