About this blog

This blog is about the daily activities in a busy typewriter shop. I want to share with you the many interesting people who come in here, the beautiful machines I get and most of all the great typewriter stories that people share with me!

Meet Ten Foot Tom

I got to watch the artists install my mural.

During the dedication I had to give a short talk in front of my mural.

Someone is going to find this Vogue type under the tree soon.

I love this peachy Royal P machine.

This is the first Emerson No. 3 I've had in the shop for repair.

Fall Type-In and More Shop Stuff

A rainy day brought us inside for the afternoon.

The winner got this pin and a Olivetti Lettera 31.

Vogue print on this Woodstock is a rare find.

Martin Tytell's dealer sticker is on the back.

His dealer shift key is very faded.

Typing in the courtyard of the Friends House on Beacon Hill.

This rebuilt Super Speed has caps only Bulletin Gothic type.

My friend Peter send me this page of L.C. Smith large type.

Does Anyone Type In Middle English Anymore ?

Early SM9 w/13" platen and Middle English keyboard.

Second SM9 with Middle English keyboard.

Olympia Splendid 33 with Hungarian keyboard

Olympia SM9 with same keyboard.

It still looks like a brand new machine.

Being interviewed by Fox-25 Morning News.

These Torpedo 18 machines always look great.

Love the address here.

The cover is masking a Royal KMM

My 1930 Rem. 3 typed up this blog.

Meet Tom Lucas - 'The Typewriter Man'

Typing at Speakers Corner in Hyde Park.

I never got tired of looking at Big Ben.

Tom Lucas on left, me on right.


It rained a lot in Paris so I typed in my room.

Ave-des Champs-Elysees

Also couldn't stop looking at the Eiffel tower.

We saw a bunch of stones in a big field. (Was so awesome).
