Typewriter Roadshow goes To Portland

Just getting warmed up with the class.

I'm more comfortable with a hands on approach.

A Hammond I recently refurbished and a American Scientific 
Class was held in the Portland Room which is the rare books room.

I'm showing someone how to fix their Lettera 35.

Showing how to adjust the escapement trip point.

This is supposed to be the first letter written by Samuel Clemens on his new Sholes and Glidden.

Calligraphy class by Abraham, standing room only.

                                                                     THE END


  1. Wow. I'm so sorry to hear about Bill. He was a really nice fellow and fun to talk to.

  2. I wish I could have attended!

    That is sad news about Mr. Dotson.

    Sorry to hear about Bill Dotson.

  5. Thanks you everyone for your nice comments. I hope to get back to blogging about the shop on a regular basis.

  6. That class looks wonderful - I'd so love to go to something like that....

    And such a sad story about Bill Dotson.
