1956 Underwood De Luxe

Serial #AB2693890

Grimy and in need of alignment but basically in fine shape. Types well. Platen hard. Grail machine at last! Mocha is still on my list. And 10 or 11cpi for all three! But adjusting to elite. This typeface is not the '55 oddity, but a more standard one, as I heard from Brian Brumfield about his. Shift lock performs worse than shift alone - first time I've seen this.

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.
