I wanted to try out some different typewriters to see how they affected my writing process. Now I never write, I just look for typewriters. Wife says I'm at my limit now, so I'm going to have to offload one before I can "try" another. I don't consider myself a collector, but I enjoy seeing the differences between machines, cleaning and restoring them, and of course using them. I'm grateful for all the excellent and free resources on how to clean and maintain these wonderful machines and am really just enjoying the process.

I live and teach English in Madrid, Spain.
