So, what kind of typewriter accessories do you have lying around, if any? No, I'm not talking about key chopped cufflinks. You know what I mean-- those little bonus items that come with a particularly well-preserved machine: manuals, keys, brushes, perhaps a bill of sale or other interesting note tucked into the case?
My cursive Hermes 3000 (picture) and my Royal Quiet De Luxe (picture) both came well-appointed: a key and a brush with the Royal, and everything with the Hermes: original manual, two-brush set, key. Here's where the story turns dark: I LOST THE MANUAL.
I know. I either misplaced it or ...unthinkably... recycled it by mistake (constant and mandatory recycling of any shiny or paper-based item not nailed down is a way of life in the Seattle area, as is talking endlessly about one's upcoming weekend marathon and the joys of organic gardening). Have any of you guys seen it lying around?
So tell me about your accessories collection if you have one (could be a daunting exercise for those of you with massive inventory) .
By the way, here's a bigger version of the above picture, with a couple of notes.
