Typewriter Elves Visit

2017 has gotten off to a banner start as the typewriter elves left three machines on my porch this evening!  The owner of a local vintage shop left me a Royal 10 to take a crack at repairing a while ago.  She also promised to gift me an assortment of additional machines which were in disrepair.  You can imagine my surprise and delight to see a Royal 5 among the three machines that she left on my porch this evening!

The Remington is a total rust bucket and the Smith-Corona, while boring, will probably just need some cleaning.  But the Royal....oh the Royal will need some work but, as they say, it has great bones!  It will be a while until I can dedicate some time for restoration but what exciting prospects!  Thanks Gwen and Ben!
