Good to see another typecast from you. That is a fine looking Royal. I was going to bid on a plain looking one yesterday that was well within my budget. It did not sell I should have, but a plain gray Royal P?ReplyDelete
Best of success with your business venture.
Thanks Bill! It's great to be typing again. I've missed it and so have my machines. I've had to do a lot of dustbunny removal and working with stiff typebars on some that I've allowed to sit dormant. Shame on me.Delete
Thank you for the compliment! I've long wanted to get this machine running again, especially since it really only needed a drawband. It was a two person job but it's a really great machine to type on. I'm going to refurbish the case; there is old mold inside and the paper is peeling everywhere.
A plain Model P? I can't even imagine one in gray; don't think I've ever seen one. How odd! I wonder if it would be considered a one-off of the usually colorful series?
Thank you very much! I'll be posting updates as I go. I will be selling some machines, but I'm always so weary about putting them in public. I'm going to need a large, locking glass cabinet, and I think I'll have to price them pretty ridiculously to keep them safe from choppers. However, I'll do discounts for someone who can prove to me they're a collector and would take care of them; I do care about their ultimate fates. That being said, I'm pretty sure I'll be selling far more Japanese antiques and Russian millitaria than typewriters. ;)
Good to hear from you, AS! And tell your gunsmith friend that I've responded to his wristwatch request. I'm not sure if he's looked at it.ReplyDelete
I hope all is well in your world, and I wish you the very best of luck with the antiques selling venture. If you were in my neck of the woods, I'd be snapping up some ex militaria for sure. Once I get a job, that is.
Hi, Teeritz! Shall do.Delete
Awww, well, the sentiment counts. Maybe I'll be able to visit your continent one day, and come bearing gifts for my Typospherian friends down there; I sure would like to, anyway. Thank you for the encouragement! I will have American and Japanese militaria as well. I need to go play catch-up on your blog; I thought you were still working! Best of luck in your search, my friend!
Molino's looks very nice, and so does your woody. I look forward to more natterings.ReplyDelete
Thank you Richard! I like the Model P quite a lot! Also discovered today that Molinos makes a mean cup of chai, too.Delete
More natterings forthcoming. :3
