Typewriter Christmas Round One


  1. That's a good looking Smith-Corona. Much nicer looking than the one (I think it's a Clipper, but I'm not sure) I gave myself for Christmas. It was too much of a bargain, and not that I deserved it, but I couldn't resist. They really do call it the Silly Season for a reason!
    It makes me feel better when I see other people were also giving themselves typewriters for Christmas.

    1. Thanks Jasper! That's part of why I got this one as well; the price was tough to beat. I definitely didn't deserve it... But I deserved the other machine I got even less! I need to actually type up a page (or a few) on it and post it up, the pictures won't do it justice though.

      I'm really glad to see both you and Richard also gave yourselves machines for Christmas, it's nice to not be alone in that...

  2. Nice machine. Springs are about the easiest thing to replace, with a little experimentation, so I hope it will be 100% functional soon.

    I bought myself a chrome Olivetti with some Christmas money (see my blog).

    Happy new year!

    1. Thank you Richard, I'm hoping the springs won't be too tough to figure out. I need to properly pull it out of the case and take a peek underneath, and definitely need to clean off the typebars. The 'D' key is completely disconnected.

      That Olivetti is stunning! I only have my L22 and an L25 (mid-paint, still) right now, but could really stand to have more... They're great machines and I love them more every time I use them.

      Happy new year to you as well! Take a look at my next post when you get a chance, I'm off to write it now

  5. Try telling your woman how special she is; you don't need to waste your money on ultra expensive and frustrating marriage counseling sessions, when you are anxious can be damaging. When you talk about building boyfriend and i broke up through email marketing make sure to build a model of perfection. Perhaps experiment with ways to problem-solve that include innovative win/win strategies.
