Modest typewriter, fair price and a unique piece of history.

Truly, there are fine restorers across the globe ready to charge top dollar and provide what you may fancy😉

Be prepared to wait as you prepare your checkbook.

However, if you’re in the market for a refurbished, modest typewriter at a fair price, I can help you locate a unique piece of history suits your needs.

Please let me know if you desires a particular make/model and I will be glad to help.

As for my refurbishing process:

1) I begin by assessing the typewriter and all desired/possible options/budget range/misc details.

2)My next step is testing the unit and it’s mechanical capabilities throughout or should it be for decor only?

3) Following that the machine is disassembled and fully cleaned along with the inner mechanism and casing panels. All inferior pads, felt inserts, grommets and faulty screws are removed and replaced.

4) All major repairs take place once the disassembly and cleaning is complete. The keys, platen, feed roller and other components that require replacement or repair receive the necessary attention at this point.

5) Every typewriter needs tweaking in one area or another, whether it be the ribbon, typeset, platen alignment, etc.

Once these steps are completed and I am satisfied with the performance of the machine, I I sign off and your typewriter is ready to Go😉

Each typewriter comes fitted with a fresh ribbon and EVERYTHING SHIPS FREE!!!
