A man of the cloth and the steel he wields

Well, maybe America Deserves to be Trumped…

WARNING – ANGRY POLITICAL RANT FOLLOWS: By now you’ve probably read an article or two about the absolute disaster of painfully obvious voter disenfranchisement and outright primary election-rigging that happened a couple of days ago in Arizona. 800,000 voters in Maricopa County where I live were forced to spend all day waiting in lines at […]

UJTU: The Revolution Marches on

It’s an interesting thing to watch something you have long thought of as a very niche interest, in this case a love and interest in old manual writing machines, burgeon into a cultural phenomena. Today I learned that the Typewriter Revolution has spread to other parts of my state, and an article in the Prescott, […]

Sighted: 1934 Woodstock 5

Not the sort of grab I’d make at that price, but had to snap some sightings photos and get the serial number. 1934 Woodstock 5, with a great old “Robert E DeBarth” dealer sticker, and that guy is still around recovering platens and doing repairs! :D 1934 Woodstock 5 @ The Typewriter Database

Gossen Tippa Serials Updated!

This post about a Gossen Tippa from BillM over at Fountain Pens & Typewriters prompted me to take a look at what the TWDB says about the Gossen Tippa, to see if I could improve on it and solve the mystery of the production year of Bill’s machine. TWDB is sourced from the 1955 Herstellungsdaten, […]

The Green Hornet unlimbers!

Dr. Benway: You’d better help this friend of yours get off the yellow stuff. It’ll kill him. Bill Lee: How do I get him to kick? Dr. Benway: Kick? Bill Lee: H-How do I get him off it? Dr. Benway: Oh. Mix it with this. Gradually increase the percentage of black without telling your friend…  […]

Come on, ring those bells…

Drago’s margin bell is finally working 100% again (probably for the first time in decades, actually) – after examining every millimeter of the rather Rube Goldbergish margin bell system of my Underwood #5 and finding nothing specifically faulty. The problem in the end was probably one of design, as the flippy arm (#20 in illustration […]

On the Acoustics of Church Baptism Pools

1987’s version of No Laughing Matter: Nate Stiffler (drums), Ted Worthless (guitar, yeah that’s me), Scott Roman (vocal/synth), Rod Glaze (bass). From at least the late 1970’s, the church I was raised in had a very progressive view of youth ministry. That church community launched several bands over the decades, with NLM being just one. […]
