Having a few issues with this otherwise lovely old Underwood. Repairman couldn't fix the escapement issues so this remains non-functioning until I can find someone who can help me out...

Writer. Proofreader. Scapegoat.
I'm happy to own 11 typewriters currently. Two are models from my childhood: a Royal Signet portable (my first typewriter when I was about 10), and an Underwood TM-5 (used in 9th grade typing class circa 1975).
I use my IBM Selectric II to win NaNoWriMo every year now and LOVE it. The older models (including a 1954 Skyriter, a 1920s Underwood, and a Royal KMM) are currently being used to type letters to new penpals who are all interested in reviving snail-mail letter writing.
