I guess there is a 'technique' so Royal portables don't skip and crowd? The chasm between the standard division and the portable team is ahhh huuge. Well at least the carriage bearings haven't fallen out of it yet.

CP worked for the Great Lakes Pipeline Co. The initials are in the case and were on the back in red something pointing at the label. I got most of it off, but worked hard to save the label with a purchase date.

As with many, the bug is back there somewhere due to an Underwood No. 5. My grandfather was on a small town school board and used one for this. My parents had a yellow Royal Safari that I used to index card everything, including a beer can collection. Collection syndrome clue! The long dormant tic was activated when my neighbors left a Remington Quiet Riter on the curb when they moved in circa 2010, Yes a believe it or not story is next, when a Hermes 3000 comes home with the girlfriend from work for free. Yes, free! From there the addiction is full steam. And yes, I now have a No. 5. Typewriters are the perfect blend of using one's technical skills, history and functional purpose.
