2 Days of ITAM Left, A Change of Subject: Royal Signet & Hermes 3000
|3166170 makes this a 1963 according to the Right Reverend Ted Munk's Typewriter Database.|
I planned an entirely different subject for this post as I was sitting at a pic-nic table behind the gas station on my way home from work typing on my Signet. Maybe I will finish and use that typecast later.
Now is there a Pica Script Hermes 3000 lurking about as a .... well, I won't continue. Mrs. M did not seem as pleased with this find I was with it. As she thought I would be taking it apart using a part I need and selling parts on Ebay rather than adding another typewriter to my collection.

3 Days Left 'Til ITAM 2013 Becomes the Past
|When the type started to lighten I thought it was light WD-40. It was the typists that forgot to change the direction of the ribbon.|

Comparing an Olympia SM7 With an Adler J4
|Typecast from my 1968 Adler J4|
Here is a link to Cameron's post on his Adler J4. His is nicer than mine. It is a script machine. I have a script J4 I have not posted yet. It is still not as nice as Cameron's.
He did not mention the Olympia model in his blog. I got the idea for the SM7 and J4 from that small reference.
I get ideas from other blogs and sometimes will write based on that idea. I trust other bloggers do not get upset with me for doing so.
Here are the links to my previous J4 and SM7 posts.
Finally how not to store typewriters:
|If only I had a larger house.|
Oh, and a few are under my desk.
I need to pick all of the ones on the floor up and let them air out side every few weeks to prevent rust and mildew. The crappy houses in Florida are built on concrete slabs and with the high humidity anything on the floor will draw moisture and get mildew, even with air conditioning.

Only 5 Days Left for ITAM 2013
|Preview of the latest Skriter|
|My SM 7|
I hope to add an Olympia SM 9 to my collection. I would like some others too, but for 2013 my priority is platens and getting a Mill, a Royal Signet Sr. and maybe an SM 9. I want to be able to compare Olympia models. Maybe I will find another SM 7 cheap.

A Fountain Pen, Ink and a Notebook

There is one thing I did not mention either (hope Jen does not read my blog) I played a Ukelin several years (decades) ago in a bluegrass band. Normally I was the sound guy whenever I was involved in anything but a marching band or a polka band.
