The company's name honors the famed 19th Century American mechanical engineer, Fredrick Winslow Taylor (1856-1915). His life's work was devoted to improving industrial efficiency. The Taylorix Company created machines and forms for improving the efficiency of the accounting business and any small business using cameralistic practices.

This Taylorix Conofix Junior allowed users to save time making account entries onto cards and a journal quickly using the special Taylorix carbonless forms. Of course, all of this efficiency came at a steep price and would be improved by using the Taylorix branded desks.

I collect late 1930's-early 1940's memorabilia. I have a small collection of radios from this era that I recently had refurbished. My interest in typewriters focused around a Royal KHM typewriter that was given to me. I decided in early 2016 to get it repaired, but the typewriter repairman I visited claimed it should be trashed and couldn't be fixed. The KHM sat on my garage bench .. again gathering dust .. I couldn't toss it.

In April 2016, on a whim, I closed an eBay BUY IT NOW (and overpaid a lot!) typewriter. The 1947 Smith-Corona Silent may have cost me dearly but it started a hobby that has become a passion to learn all I can about these amazing machines. Within 4 years I have collected nearly 160 machines and am slowly learning how to repair, be patient, and be logical! :) I hope to share my collection with the world very soon!
