My first experience with a typewriter came when I was around 6 years old, every time I visited my grandmother I would go type on her Smith Corona electronic (wedge) typewriter. Back in early 2012, my mother stumbled across the USBTypewriter project, and I was hooked instantly. I quickly bought a kit, and in June 2012 I purchased the machine to be used with it: my beautiful late model Royal 10. Later that year as I stopped at an antique store, and found another machine: this time a Remington Rand Model 7. I thought I would buy just one more. Then later, one more. And then one more. Pretty soon I amassed around 30 machines, and that number is still growing today! I hope to get them all uploaded here soon so that I actually have a count on my typewriters, because I lost count long ago.
