"Im Westen nichts Neues"
Friday, August 17, 2012
get out there looking!
I just heard on the radio that today 8/17 is National Thrift Shop Day. I can't participate, I'm at work, then on a plane, and won't touch down until after closing time. The best I can do is encourage typewriter/vintage tech hunting among my readers. Good luck!

National Night Out
Here's our route: http://www.mapmyride.com/routes/fullscreen/122240965/
|I had to re-thread the ribbon in the 22, it had been threaded behind the right side of the vibrator and kept tugging it up in the way of the line of type. Smudges can be seen where I did this, but improvement after.|
|hot shop again|
|My shirt only five bucks, and I got to apply the design myself|
|last party - I forgot to take pics at the other two|
|Now I can't put my typewriter away.|
First, I added a link after publication to yesterday's post. Here again for those who missed it is the article from ETCetera. Go to page 10.

All four of these crank smoothly, but three are missing a roller, I believe.
I'm starting with the two oldest ones.
|I'll get to the Model 77's in a later post.|
2.) Mentions Edison on the label. I had wondered about that but one of my search hits happened to be an article in ETCetera. from 1991 (p. 10) giving the answer. This is Model no. 76.
