The Typewriter Database Our Mission »

The "Typewriter Database" is the biggest source of typewriter serial numbers on the Internet today. As far as we know, it's even the most complete collection of serial numbers ever. But when you see the number of given brand names, it's still only a beginning.

This Database is also a collection of typewriter photo galleries from the collections of enthusiasts all over the world. These galleries are linked to manufacturers and not only serve as a valuable additional resource for research about various machines, but also are fun to page through and see what collectors have in their typewriter collection.

I'm pondering the size of the menu fonts, but honestly, the compactness of the font is kind of necessary to make the menus work on phones. Still looking at similarly compact fonts to see if we can find something we like better. (:
Also, I think I've finally got the Hunter Scores updating nightly again.

Doin' some Site Maintenance Wed, 24 Oct 2018
