198X Brother AX-20 Serial # ? 198X Brother AX-20 typewriter, Serial # ? Jake Fischer's 198X Brother AX-20 typewriter. 2014-06-21 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Jake Fischer: 198X Brother AX-20 Serial # ? Everyone needs a wedge, right?

I just had to buy this after a whole day of unprofitable garage-sale exploring. I asked each and every house if they had any typewriters, and this is all that I got. The lady had to go inside to find it, and told me to name my price--$5.

I don't know why I do not like any sort of electric. Maybe it's innate, maybe its the computer-esque quality of the feel, maybe it's the too-perfect type on the paper. Whatever it is, I do not like any sort of electric.

I am a typewriter collector and amateur repairman who became obsessed after typing at a young age on my grandfather's Olivetti Lettera 22, which he soon gave to me. Now I have had over ten typewriters in my collection, flipping the less valuable ones for a low price to fund my obsession.

At one point, I was weary of polish; now I see the wonderful shine that Meguiar's cleaning wax brings to a glossy paint. I still avoid polishing nickle or chrome, for I hear that patina is valuable on old metal. However, I refuse to use the devil's website, also known as Ebay. Just too many deaths by shipping...and unacceptably exuberant prices...
