I take apart my Tom Thumb…

Sometimes you just want to see if you can improve things.  This is a toy after all… designed for people who don’t have a clue.  Back in December I got good results from my Tom Thumb… but it did not last… so I decided to see if I could improve things… I like to think I did but compared to Dec maybe not  but better than Jan…  (or not… but it was going down hill and only got worse).  The Remie Scout works great and has many decades of life left.  The Tom Thumb will only last that long on a shelf.

  1. I will say simply that the Tom Thumb is a toy typewriter… while the Royal Scrittore sold as a full fledge typewriter. The Tom Thumb is a plaything not to be taken seriously. As such I’ve had my moments of play on it and will not miss once I’ve done…
    Gee
