At 115 this Underwood works fine…

I keep walking past this 1903 Underwood #4… today I took it off the shelf and was amazed at how well it works.  Then after typing a page… I did a little work on it and now want to type another page.  For some reason the memory of how it didn’t work at all when I first got it stays with me… even when it types better at 115 than many other machines I use more often.

1903 Underwood #4

6 years of GEE!

I have been online 6 years now… I had thought that it this point I would have many great insights; but instead I just have the type.  I have words on paper that fill many notebooks.  I have pressed and touch the keys of many wonderful machines.  I find that 6 years later my fingers still look forward to the words to come, the thoughts to convey and the sounds to be heard as I type away.  That’s all I really have to say… its just about the type!!
