sad news this week

  1. Sorry to hear about the closure of the park.

  2. Hm...what day were you thinking of coming down? Saturday? That's right in my neck of the woods. I know you said the time isn't set in stone, impromptu type-in could be fun. if you had a guesstimate!

    I'm thinking maybe I could strap the Lettera 33 to the back of my bike--test the little guy's portability!

  3. We're thinking Sunday anywhere from 11 to 3. We'd probably go down between 10 and 11 (just a guess based on past rides), ride from the quarry to the park and back, then she wants to swim which would give me time to type.

  4. I think a more or less impromptu country type-in could be a lot of fun! I have stuff going on in the morning, so I probably couldn't *ride* down there with a typewriter (much though I like that idea), especially since I'm still sadly out of shape and slow...but I could probably meet you at the park at some point! It's at the park, no, the quarry pond? As often as I've been down to that end of the trail, I should know...but I don't.

    Maybe I could shoot you an e-mail back channel with my phone number and you could call or text to let me know when you're headed this way? I may not be able to answer in the morning, but I'd keep an eye out for any messages.

  5. sounds good. you have my email don't you?

  6. I had some issues with the carriage lever screw on my Quiet-Riter, but at last I managed for figure it out. (Apart from doing numerous other things, finally) I taped the base of the lever down with painters tape and then unscrewed the lever screw top while holding the screw nut underneath with a screwdriver (I had it fall off perviously and it was a real pain to get it back on given such a tight space). Then I slowly screwed it back in trying to align the bottom nut as perpendicular as possible. I hope my explanation makes sense and maybe helps a little. the bottom nut may also be missing or stripped.

  7. thank you I will take another look at it!


Let me know if capcha comes back. Thanks for commenting.
