This machine was rescued from my parents' basement. It was lucky that I did; it since flooded shortly after I removed it.

I used this machine during the 2015 NaNoWriMo. Although I didn't get very far, it did work just fine and cleaned up nicely as well.

I decided that I wanted to find the one typewriter that I remembered my mom using to type my term papers in school. Even though we couldn't find it, I found that I enjoyed typewriters and started a small collection. It extended to rescuing the ones in my parents' basement a week before it flooded.
