198x Sears The Scholar with correction Serial # 12565619 198x Sears The Scholar with correction typewriter, Serial # 12565619 Mei Travis's 198x Sears The Scholar with correction typewriter. 2020-12-24 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mei Travis: 198x Sears The Scholar with correction Serial # 12565619 After working with computer screens all day, the last place I want to sit down and write is at another one. I started by looking for ONE manual typewriter and now here I am one month in and 12 typewriters later...

This Nakajima machine has the features I prefer: wide platen, 1.5 line spacing, modern keyboard layout, and a dark & even imprint. I looks practically brand new, and even though it's plastic, it's hefty enough not to migrate across the desk with every power return. It has a hard plastic case, a quiet motor, and I got it for a song because I was the only bidder on SGW.

As I type more and more on the electric models, the less and less I use my manual typewriters. :-D

Out of the blue in the summer of 2020, I really wanted a typewriter again, so after some online research and browsing, two Brother machines landed on my doorstep. A pastel blue 1971 Montgomery Ward's Signature 511D and a creamy 1985 Sears ultraportable both ignited a fire I haven't felt in a long time. I quickly found Ted Munk, the Facebook groups, and the rest of the typewriter online community, where I learned how to fix them and appreciate them. By summer's end I had collected 20 typewriters to cure my 2020 pandemic blues. Now I'm obsessed about all the different styles, every aspect of the mechanics, and their important history. Typewriters are an endless source of fascination as a literary medium, for creativity, a tinker-fest for machine geeks, and still contribute to the economy. I truly enjoy learning how to bring mid-century or later typewriters back to life, even the electric ones, while completely in awe of the unique antiques that folks brilliantly restore. It warms my heart that there are others, and here we are sharing the same passions about typewriters together.
