There are fewer typewriter shops today than there were last week. There will probably be fewer tomorrow.

--But the ones that are left are generally run by men (and women) who wouldn't choose anything else. For instance, Cambridge Typewriter in Boston, recently visited by Marko of The Munchkin Wrangler. It looks like a wonderful place! (And the owner has a blog, too).

When you find a typewriter shop, don't keep it a secret; we need to make sure they've got plenty of work, so they'll still be around when our machines need attention.


  1. Not sure where to suggest this...
    Not sure if this is retro enough...
    Certainly not associated with typewriters.

    But - very early op-amps:

  2. An excellent link, and very welcome!

  3. I *still* want an IBM Selectric!

    Jim, I have one, in need of repair. You want it? Free for shipping.

  5. Oh, I'd *love* to have it, but my wife would probably bonk me over the head with it!
    How much "repair" does it need? If it's not too bad, I'll ask her, as she really likes Selectrics, too.
