The BOSTON TYPE-OUT is Coming!

I've seen this machine in two different TV shows this year.

Someone just bought this Streamliner as a gift.

This pink Olympia SM-7 sold a few days ago. We nicknamed it Pepto.


  1. Excellent Idea! If i weren't on the other side of the country, I'd be there for sure just to check out the Legendary Tom Furrier and his Shop of Wonders :D

  2. The type-out sounds great!

  3. Sounds good to me too. Now I want to arrange another one here, maybe finally get around to that Olympia shindig.

  4. I am mad! I am visiting Boston from San Francisco only one week later and I will miss this fabulous event! Have fun with it. We just had a Snail Mail Social here in SF on Saturday with loads of typewriters - I posted some photos on my blog (CappuccinoandArtJournal.blogspot.com). I want to stop by the shop when I"m in town -- my wondering Royal typewriter is from you. Keep typing -- and sending mail.

  5. Very nice machines. The pink Olympia is... special.

  6. Hi
    I think you need to check your "settings" for your account. There is a new setting there for replys to comments. I had the same problem when they updated their interface. I will try to call you tomorrow.

  7. Seen this yet, Tom?
    - will you be interviewed?
    - hope so.



    - Dave, a customer
    (see you at the Type-Out)

  8. A new, and very pleased/impressed reader. Will visit often.

  9. so sorry I missed it! You should do it again!

    and did you see this pic on the BPL flicker page?

  10. Hey all,

    Check out this short-film that features a Typewriter in a main role: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6n5kSccGgio

  11. Love that Royal! It's the Futura 800 isn't it? It has a unique typeface and I think your current tlog was typed with it.

  12. Martin- Yes that was a Futura 800. I love the typeface on it too. I did typecast with it.

  13. Yeah, I can comment again. thanks for the tip Richard.

    Pamela, I hope you can stop by when you are in town. It would be great to meet you.
