Fountain pen, typewriter collecting,
and maybe more.
Probably all it needs is a good cleaning and some oiling. I'm just expecting to see the after cleaning photos :)
My Royal "O" portable has the same skipping issue, and it seems to be a very clean machine.I have three Remingtons (Model 17, two QuietRiters) and must admit that I am partial to their typefaces. Yours is equally elegant and utilitarian at the same time. Just something about it...
Just blogged about my own Noiseless 7, which skips on the letter "a". A bit aggravating, but I manage to use (and love) it regardless. They are so well-designed! Hope you get this one into fighting shape soon.
Bill! Hi. I found you :-) Snap!
that is one creature i'd like to have in my stable :-D nice typer!
