So, there are seven standard typewriters on my front lawn.
(At this early juncture in the post, I stop to hereby declare myself Winner of Most Typewriters Acquired In One 24 Hour Period. I dare anyone to challenge my claim to this dubious distinction-- although firstly, we need to calculate our collecting handicap scores if Olivander is involved in this challenge.)
What's your maximum TPD* score?
The machines hail from a Petaluma museum that had chosen to disgorge its collection of dusty typing artillery (I heard about this deal through a colleague at work. I ask, what would you have done?). Somewhere in a vague e-mail exchange, 4 typewriters became 7, and three months later, 350 lbs of standard typewriters found their way to my front lawn.
Typeophiles of the Pacific Northwest, are any of you coughcough interested in a machine?
Some of them seem to work. Some of them seem to need work. I am no expert in these matters. Perhaps I will truck them all down to Ace Typewriter to get a medical opinion. Really, I just want to keep one. Which one?
