After 24 hours… it seemed important to recall how I felt when I first opened the box with this 100 year old machine in it.  To be honest the box seemed much too thin to hold a typewriter  and it was pushed in on top.  Turned out to have had lots of head room… with no cushioning underneath… but the machine looked serene and perfect.  I was amazed.

When I pressed the type bar nothing happened… when I pressed the key’s nothing… I put on a new ribbon… they did not turn… I was feeling very sad when I pressed a key again… nothing… then I got up to leave and the carriage moved a “flicker”… the rest is history.

They just want to be used.  The 1913 Royal 5 types better each day.
