1959 Hermes 2000

Serial #2209493

Purchased in Northern Virginia via craigslist for $50. This machine has a really nice typeface and would be great to type on except it has a skipping problem. I can sometimes type without it being so bad, sometimes even for a page with just one or two skips, but other times it skips every sentence or worse.
Made some adjustments per a recommendation on Richard's blog.

I am an aspiring novelist and avid typewriter enthusiast from the New River Valley in Virginia. I am a proud Virginia Tech graduate with an education in creative writing. I use typewriters for all my writing and am working on a novel. I also do street poetry. I often can be found writing on one of my machines in downtown Blacksburg and enjoying a drink.
