Whoo-doggie! If you’re wonderin’ why I haven’t posted in awhile, it’s because I been busy. Doin’ what? Well, first I was gathering material for a little project called Operation: OOPRAP – which looks to be nearing completion of Phase 001, and then I got distracted by this:
Basically, it’s the book I’ve wished to own since starting to tinker with typewriters. An omnibus volume on how the things work, how to fix them and make them sing, what the tools look like, what they do and what they’re called, illustrated ribbon spools, ribbons and platen reference, and the measurements of all those little ball bearings, clips and springs that run away on occasion. Forget about the bit on “Illustrated Age Lists” – I’ve decided that I’m loathe to put incomplete age lists in print until they are complete, so I’ll likely be doing a reference section on Typewriter Typefaces instead, assuming I don’t run into the limit on how many pages I can put in a spiral bind through the publisher.
About 300 pages in the bag so far. stay tuned. (:
