Escapement

For my lady and fellow typewriter enthusiasts.  Thanks to Joe VC for his recent explanation on why this aggravating skipping occurs.  ~TH~

typed on an Olivetti 25 which by the way, neither skips nor jumps.  ~TH~

An Early Gift – 1965 Brother DeLuxe

I don’t get out to the Salvation Army store very often, even though it’s only 20 minutes away.  Today I went in with low expectations for any typewriter sightings.  Shows what I know – I came away with two “new” typewriters.  Better yet, this one is a critter I’ve been wishing for, a Brother DeLuxe.  Serial number L5887827   ~TH~

1957 Underwood ACE Golden Touch

Sorry to say, nothing golden about the touch of this typewriter at the moment.

I purchased this critter in December 2015 but never got around to using it much due to some frustrating mechanical problems.  I didn’t pay a lot for it, so I’m willing to put it on the workbench soon and try to fix the niggles.

I have posted it on the Typewriter Database, in case you want to explore some more information about this series of typewriters.   ~TH~
