Nice selection of books available at Changing Hands. I didn’t have the “Typewriter Rodeo” one yet, so I got a copy of that one.
The typewriters were pretty busy. Although it seemed like there wasn’t much more than 30 people around at once, I noticed that the people seemed to completely change from one hour to the next. I suspect there may have been more like 90 or 100 people floating through and stopping by over the whole event.
Somehow Joe ended up with the prize Skyriter even though Kevin won it. I don’t think Kevin minded, though – he came out with a nice Tower Commander – a match to the one I got from Eric at the last Type-In!
Bill Wahl checking out “California Typewriter” playing on one of the big TVs.
Joe’s Rocket needs a mainspring. Bill’s gonna take a look tomorrow.
Kevin’s Godrej Prima – first time I’ve tried one of these India-made machines. I was very nicely surprised to find it’s well-built and a solid rock to type on. Seemed to me to be as good as any SG-1, except the design seems easier to work on.
Joe’s “Adobe Rose” loaded with receipt tape. Now them’s typecaster margins, but I think the 2 1/2″ strip might even be a little small.
I had a couple of “The Hermes”, very tasty! (:
