So here we all were, sitting around the typosphere after and Robert Messenger and Richard Polt took their typewriters travelling, thinking just one thing...
Check out Sue's blog, and her stuff!
My wonderful Kolibri.
I took the Kolibri over to John's place the day after it arrived, and we give it a bit of a cursory look over on his counter. We blasted it with air and gave it a little bit of a clean, and just made sure that it got working properly. When I have a little more time I'll continue working on it till it is in perfect operating order. It is close, and It should only take some more detailed cleaning.
Indavertently however, I managed to damage the finish attempting something with polishing. You can't see it in these photos, as I managed to repair most of it, but I felt like a right dick when I did it. it was on the top of the ribbon cover too where everyone can see it.
