Great shape and types like a dream except for the eraser rubbings and dust gumming up the works (soon to be remedied). Sparked a great discussion of carriage locks on these machines - the case contains the locking device. Thanks Mark Petersen!
Status: Typewriter Hunter
From Toronto Canada. Tokyo-based entrepreneur since 1998 and meditation teacher since 2000. Learned to type in Grade 9 following mind-altering lunches and still experience flashbacks while typing. Mother did shorthand and typed 90 wpm as stenographer, dad pecked out haiku on his old typewriter as long as I remember. Moved to thermal printing, 8-character display CanoWord Pen 24 in 1986 when my typewriter broke, then to FujiXerox, Mac and iPhone. Bought my first typewriter of the new millennium (a Lettera 32) in March 2015. Muscle memory has graduated to neural reboot--every moment at the typewriter brings back fresh memories of type-happy childhood and visions of literary grandeur. Use typewriter for inspiration/rough drafts and computer/iPhone (Scrivener/Evernote) for polishing.
Lid fails to lock open - using a pen instead!
Nice how the top detaches to create a stable platform.
Centering this arrow on the lower paper scale shows it's in position to stow in case.
This fixture holds the carriage in place during transport.
No carriage lock lever on these older Arrows and QDLs - the above case lock does the job.
