I am a retired printer going back to letterpress and hot type days, and just recently have begun collecting. I have acquired four typewriters so far, ranging from the 30's to the 60's; two Royals and two Smith-Coronas (well, almost two--one is a Sears Tower Commander). I love working on small machinery, and have been known to do a bit of woodworking occasionally. Also play guitar and mandolin and have been spotted at picnics and barbecues playing in string bands (Americana). I think old cars are great as well.
I don't have a preference for a specific style or date of typewriter yet, but seem drawn to mid-century portables. I'd like to try a few desktops to complement my writing, but we'll see what the budget and my wife's sanity can tolerate.
