Its so small, light easy to put away… easy on the eyes… not a great typer…. don’t really care… I press keys and “Happy” will appear…
I soak my blick roller and it turns the fluid purple… when its clear I hope to see black!
Some things you just don’t notice… noiseless typewriters had a long life over 40 years of manufacture and for the most part I was unaware. So many existed but I find them to be uncommon but common… so many but so few. A contradiction perhaps… but it sparks my interest in them.
What if you felt that you could duplicate a master painting without any artistic training? Would you spend 8 years in the effort? Tim Jenison did and had it documented to show it was so.
This is something to see, behold and wonder about all at the same time. I give it four stars… two thumbs up… and GEE if I had the time and money…
I must admit that I am a twisted person… I could not overlook Dickens and Oliver and as some kid once said: “I want some more…”
I had seen worse… own worse in fact. I offered a price the seller thought was way low… but said if no one bid on it in seven days I could have it at my price.
The spools did not turn… I kept punching holes into the ribbon as I attempted to see what the problem was. I kept cutting off ruined ribbon… until the roll was almost done… then things began to creep and crawl and spin and turn and the next thing I knew I had a page of type … no more holes in the ribbon (what is left of it)… And the day ends with a smile!
Watched the movie Mr. Peabody & Sherman… way back when I watched the cartoons. It made me realize I own my on way-back machine that can take me back through time and history every time I use it.
Can’t seem to stay away from getting a good page out of the Multiplex. Based on Thomas Russo showing 1926 for a folding multiplex only 2,000 numbers less than mine… I will place mine as a 1926.
Switch one strip of rubber for another and “wow” performance improves… and its a different typewriter.
