  1. I cannot find any contact info for you anywhere at the moment so I’m just going to leave this here and hope you see it.

    TWBD does not have manufacturer entry for Nakajima (Zayre) or Zayre, making it impossible to catalouge Zayre’s Aeries 57 ultraportable typewriter. It is a Nakajima-ALL Topstar AT-3000 in a Zayre department store exclusive Grey color with of course Zayre branded emblems. Adding either of those manufacturers would be greatly appreciated.

    1. Zayre (Nakajima) added – thanks (:

      1. I hate to be a bother *again* but we also do not appear to have a Brand for Shanghai Weilv Mechanism Company (whew that’s a mouthful.) They make all the modern typers like the epoch and their ilk. We also do not have a Brand for
        Zhangjiagang Feiteng Typewriter Co., Ltd, who made the “Flying” line of typewriters, though they appear to now be defunct. Not common in the US and examples will no doubt be rare but they would be worth having on hand. (Especially since I have a flying fish 210)

        1. These are usually branded as something else like “Royal”, but I went ahead and added them anyway. Thanks! (:
