Facit TP1 Pica Cubic


Writing Ball

Magic Margin


Comparison of the TP1 and TP2

Sorry for the typos.  I proof read before posting and somehow never catch them before I post and, as now, I am too lazy to redo the post.   I need proof reading practice!

Smith-Corona Classic-12 Script Preview

After working in the yard Monday after dinner I decided to sit down with a Yuengling and relax, but a typewriter case sitting next to me kept calling.  So I picked it up, opened it and typed the above bit of nothingness.

I picked up this typewriter a few weeks ago and have yet to clean or do anything else with it.  I have others to post first, but somehow this one managed to bump its way up the posting priority list.

Seems to work fine except the lower part of the y and f are a bit faint.

More later.  I have a Royal Custom-III to finish, and Noiseless Model 7 and a Royal Crescent that all need cleaning first.

Sorry for the type / computer cast.  Wife's sleeping in the next room and I am too lazy to head to the garage to type.

Oh, Yuengling?  The oldest and largest brewery in the U.S.A. Surprising since I remember them as a small family owned and run brewery on the side of the hill on Mahantongo St in Pottsville, PA only about 1/2 hour drive from where I lived.
Problem in FL is the limited product, no Premium beer or Chesterfield Ale, only Lager.

A Carbon Ribbon and Techno Pica

Notice that this Hermes does not have a card guide.  If anyone has one as a spare part or a non working 3000 for parts please let me know.  I am looking for knobs, a card guide and a platen.

21 Questions Part 3

This is still not a real Olympia.  Olympia typewriters do not sound tinny when typing or have the crappy feel of this Japanese machine.  This one may end up on Ebay or Etsy before long.  I really want an SG-3, but have no room for one.  Maybe an SM-9.

21 Questions Part 1

As always I notice my mistakes after I scan and post.  I had the paper loaded slightly out of alignment.  I did not count my parts machines in question 2.  Presently I have 3 machines I use for parts and a few boxes of parts I managed to find.

Several others as well as myself have been having some dialog in one of the Yahoo! groups where I am seeking help on the serial numbers of this Classic-12 and my script Classic-12.  Except for no changeable type keys and red selector my script machine is a twin to this one.  I ran out of time to post as I intended.
I'll do that later when I post on the script one.

As witnessed by this post I never did replace the Classic-12.
