Monday, January 2, 2017
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!
