An Unexpected Olivetti














Whether or not I keep this machine depends wholly on if I can get it to be less stiff. Quite honestly, it was a pain getting this typecast typed out on its foul heavy keys. If it typed as well as it looked, it would be a favorite of mine for sure!

I hope you all had a happy weekend! (as I type this it is actually Friday, so I hope I had a happy weekend too!)

Launch the Torpedo!












Just a reminder, remember to check in on the parts machine page! I am currently working on updating it, and I have added two new parts machines.

Why I collect (a deeper question than you would think!)

In my posts on this blog, I feel that I need to evolve. As any regular viewer would know, my posts are generally light and based mainly on the typewriters themselves. I have a much deeper personality than most of my blog could show, and so I wrote this. I hope to do some more long winded posts like this at some point, but they probably won't start to appear until the summer when I have more time on my hands to write a well thought out typecast.

Enjoy!

My first typewriter, a battered Royal FP with major skipping issues. I no longer own it, so this is the best picture I can provide.
