A Sunken Treasure Story

This machine will be a before and after story next week.

This Royal portable is a perfect example of what customers are bring in.

This Dutch Remington Junior belongs to customers grandmother.


  1. Thanks for the update, the great photos, and the intriguing stories.

    I think I know what that machine is under the comically tattered cover ... but I'll wait and see!

  2. I'm also looking forward to the after story on the mystery machine. Thanks for the updates and eye candy!

  3. Great update!

    You're doing wonderful, necessary work -- which is more important than blogging, when you really get down to it.

    Seriously, I sleep better at night knowing that you and other typewriter repair people are busy keeping our machines in good operating condition! I'd rather have you do that than post a lot.

  4. Wonderful, entertaining post. I am going to get in there one of these days!

  5. Totally looking forward to that mysterious three-bank!
    And the shipwreck story was entertaining, too.

  6. It's good that you are busy. Maybe you will get more customers who need a typewriter right now.

    I look forward to the mystery machine.

  7. I can't wait to see the before and after of the mystery typewriter!

  8. Thanks for the update Tom. Glad you are still too busy to post so often, if you know what I mean.

  9. Thank you everyone for your generous comments. I'm glad you're intrigued by the mystery machine. Even I can't wait to see how it turns out!
