Just playing a small part with small parts.


Time to crack out the Remington 5 for a bit. And as it is such a nice day, the front deck will be perfect.

  1. Scott, That is a great idea. I too have parts machines. Perhaps all of us who have those should post them so others know what may be available if they need a part.

    Not too sure if and when I can do it since we are getting ready to relocate and I have much more work than I ever imagined to prepare -- including how I am going to safely transport 50 or more working typewriters and all the radios I have acquired in the past 10 years.

    1. Best of luck with that! I'd imagine that's quite a haul.

    1. I'd like to think so. Mind you, I'm trying to figure out how not to become a supplier of parts for some of the dodgy dealers that lurk around some of the members of the typosphere.

    Great! I like to think of parts like "organ donations"... the host may be gone but other's live because of their gift. It is a wonderful thing to do.

    1. My car license in Victoria used to read 'potential organ donor', a label that I found most disconcerting. And you are right. The host here is gone, but the parts live on.

  4. I've been thinking of doing the same thing myself, especially after I noticed your new page last night! Excellent idea. I'll be emailing you soon as well.

    1. Got the email. I didn't have a moment to dig through the box this afternoon to get that bit, but I'll be talking to you soon.

  6. That's very thoughtful of you! Actually I'm looking for two small bits off Dora but I guess that for the price of postage I could buy the whole machine (in a little neglected state maybe) over here in UK. :)

  7. Sott,

    What a great idea! Unless someone is lucky enough to have a bunch of parts given to them, sharing pieces and parts between each other is almost a necessity, it seems to me. I've got a couple of machines like that - maybe I'll add a page to my website too!

  8. Wonderful! Put those bits and pieces back to work!
