POLL OF THE MONTH - April
(P.O.T.M - March is not available.)
PLEASE NOTE - BECAUSE SO MANY MACHINES HAVE COME AND GONE OVER THE PAST FEW MONTHS, IT IS VERY DIFFICULT FOR ME TO FIND OUT WHAT I HAVEN'T POSTED YET ON MY WEBSITE. THEREFOR, YOUTUBE WILL ALSO BE ACCURATE TO WHAT HAS COME AND GONE INTO MY COLLECTION. THE COLLECTION PAGE, IS NOT ACCURATE ANYMORE AS SOME OF THE MACHINES ON THERE HAVE BEEN SOLD. FOR EXAMPLE,
- The case-less SCM Classic 12 (sold)
- The biggest Olympia SG1 (Sold)
- Olympia SF Portable (Sold)
Many more as well....
Thanks for understanding. I will try my best to keep you updated as much as possible.
In September, i will be attending my first year of university, and i will be going into art studies, hopefully 2 years, and after that i would like to become a film director, because i could combinate everything that i like doing. Art, writing, story-boarding, photography, character development...etc.
I am looking for scholarships that could help me with my financial needs. Therefor i am putting out a announcement for people to HOPEFULLY provide me with information about possibilities.
It would a great help!!!
Thanks for reading.
BIG MISTAKE MADE - Need forgiveness!!
I found out that the case was rotted already before i put it ouside. It had the white fungus on it, and this has eaten the wood. It is a good thing the case hasn't falled apart. Still let me know...
A already water damaged typewriter case has been damage even more after i was stupid enough to leave it outside. It was covered in mold and apparently sunlight is good for that. However, of course i was the lucky person leaving it out, and that night we had a storm. When i found it, two days later, the water was still sitting in it. The case was a wooden one, for a Remington Model 5. THE TYPEWRITER WAS INDOORS. I placed it on my desk so it isn't damaged. It is SAFE. I need to find a replacement for this case, with the same fit. This case is not worth salvaging. The wood has deformed.
IF ANYBODY COMES ACROSS A CASE WITH A REMINGTON PORTABLE MDL 5 FIT, PLEASE CONTACT ME. THANKS!

"Drtypewriter" youtube channel shut down.
DrTypewriter's Youtube channel comes to at the end of a line. Because of increased difficulty in managing the account, answering messages, and even upload videos because of the new Google "+" system, I have decided to retire my Youtube Channel. However, this does not mean i am stopping with videos ENTIRELY. I am going to set up a page on this website, with videos for those that have enjoyed the videos so far. The videos on the DrTypewriter Youtube Channel will remain where they are for those willing to watch them.
My apologies for the inconvience.

HOLIDAY SEASON IS EMPTYING MY TYPEWRITER stock RATHER RAPID!!!
Typewriters sell quickly now when christmas is getting more near and near. Don't forget to consider a typewriter as a wonderfull gift for you loved ones.
My 1909 Underwood NO5 has been repainted decades ago, probably because it was a army machine. I found another article on eBay that has the same kind of Underwood 5 for sale, which actual clears it up even more.
PRICE REDUCTION ON MY FOR SALE PAGE!
The total amount of typewriters in the collection is:
Pictured above you see a type sample of my Royal KMM. It has a jamming escapement that skips during normal speed typing. Does anybody know what the problem could be and how to fix it?
This is a Underwood No. (?) and i can't find any information on it. I bought it for $40.00 and the man i bought it from said it came from the twenties. But i can't find any info. If you can help that would be greatly appreciated. Shoot me a email if you know something.
The serial is: 248856
UK's 'last typewriter' produced
Check out this video, showing off the last typewriter produced in the UK.
I just wanted to show a advertisement on
Craigslist - Philadelphia
concerning a typewriter (suprisingly a SG1) that is in exactly the same condition as my SG3 was before restoration. Up to the flaking of the chrome on the carriage return leaver. A common weakness in Olympia maybe.
Here is the link, but when
the ad is removed, this will expire and i will only will have a picture of what the ad looked like.
