185 Points, Typewriter Hunter
Stuck indoors since March 2020, on pandemic furlough from my usual occupation, I've become a serious typewriter enthusiast. Once chained to a desk with a computer screen, micro-cassette tapes and a Dictafone by my side, I am now an analog devotee. I love typewriters.
My journey into typewriter hunting began in March 2020, and since acquiring my first machine, a Voss ST-24, I have now learned to recondition nearly 20 machines.
I keep careful records of each typewriter in a binder at home, collect typeface samples, photographs, and make journal entries. I love to read and now have many books on the subject. I hope to continually expand my knowledge through careful study and hands-on research. I love using typewriters in my daily life. I collect some, sell some, and have given some as gifts.
I have been inspired by others, including a famous actor, who have done the same.
In real life, at the computer keyboard, I type 100 words per minute, specializing in medical terminology for surgical pathology reports.
At home, using typewriter keyboards, I estimate my typing speed is closer to 65-80 wpm, with variable accuracy, and I am happy to be slowing down a little.
The deliberate process of writing on a typewriter has been good for my soul. Typewriting to journal has been a balm during these strange times. I hope to share my appreciation of typewriters with others and to meaningfully contribute to this wonderful database.
