1946 Royal Quiet De Luxe Serial # A-1252722 1946 Royal Quiet De Luxe typewriter, Serial # A-1252722 John Munroe's 1946 Royal Quiet De Luxe typewriter. 2017-04-13 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of John Munroe: 1946 Royal Quiet De Luxe Serial # A-1252722 "The Ritz"

This post-war QDL was clearly dropped on its chin. After hair dryer and disposable chopstick backed mallet pounding, the space bar again works, but the type alignment still needs adjusting. More as I figure it out! Beautiful typer with a beautiful case.

Sphinx of black quartz, judge my vow.

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.
