1967 Brother Webster XL-500 Serial # C7562255 1967 Brother Webster XL-500 typewriter, Serial # C7562255 James Grooms's 1967 Brother Webster XL-500 typewriter. 2024-03-17 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of James Grooms: 1967 Brother Webster XL-500 Serial # C7562255 A UV and smoker challenge. The Clairol Professional Pure White Hair Developer 20V (link) did the trick on all the white bits including the knobs. These are nice typewriters. They are snappy and efficient. In addition, they are robust and easy to work on. The XL-500 is a preset tab without the power spacer (see XL-747).

As I wrap this, I have the contrast of a junky S-C Corsair on the bench at the same time. Both from 1967 and oh what a difference. Is the Corsair - Profile - whatever the worst typewriter to ever wear the S-C badge?

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.
