So a bit ago I got an excited email from ProfessorC, he who is a young Jedi Master of Selectrics, and who has a restoration of a rare and incredibly complex IBM Composer under his belt. He told me of a trove of Selectrics and parts offered to him by a fellow in Arkansas who was shutting down his shop. Some 100 typewriters in all, plus large cabinets packed with parts and supplies.
Any sane person would look at the prospect of driving 400 miles to pick up a hundred typewriters and easily say “Thanks, but no thanks. I love typewriters but I don’t need to save every single one.”
But the Professor, perhaps he is not so very sane:
So anyway, if anyone needs Selectric parts, or heck – a whole Selectric, I think I know someone you can talk to… :D
