TYPEWRITERS

"Upgrade that pencil to a typewriter"

TYPEWRITERS: We repair, sell, and buy typewriters (and supplies) of all kinds from the 19th century to the 21st century (including manuals, electrics, electronics, vintage, and antique). Yes, the Japanese and the Chinese are still making new typewriters. We have a varying stock of used typewriters for sale that consists of antique/vintage manual typewriters, to electric/electronic typewriters, to word processors with spell checkers, memory with floppy disk, and cartridge I/O. We have portable, battery-operated (no cord) to thermal-operated (no ribbon) typewriters.

We are often asked, "Who still uses typewriters?" Well, the answer is wide-ranging: auto dealers. churches, funeral homes, CPA's, lawyers, medical labs, oil companies, banks, etc; i.e., usually people who deal with manual, multi-sheet forms. And then there is the nostalgia craze for those who just like the good, old days, or want to go off the grid/Internet, and for whom only a manual typewriter will do.

We stock an array of typewriter ribbons: cloth for older manuals and the like, and erasable ribbons and correcting ribbons, for the newer typewriters. If you have the original, ribbon wheels with dry (unusable) ribbon fabric, we can also just wind some new ribbon material on them, if there are no plastic spools available.

 

ELECTRIC TYPEWRITERS

IBM SELECTRICS and IBM Lexmark WHEELWRITERS and SWINTEC

We still repair electric typewriters, including the IBM SELECTRICS and IBM Lexmark WHEELWRITERS, as well as, SWINTEC, SMITH-CORONA, UNDERWOOD, ROYAL, NAKAGIMA, BROTHER, etc.

However, parts for the IBM SELECTRIC have become scarce and therefore, sometimes they are impossible to repair. But we still have lots of type balls, from new to good used, with various fonts and pitches (some are still sealed in their original red, plastic carrying cases!)

We usually have a selection of refurbished electric typewriters, from the earliest , to the latest models.

We usually stock electric typewriter supplies like correctable ribbons and correcting tapes.

 

ELECTRONIC TYPEWRITERS

We still repair electronic typewriters, including the IBM / LEXMARK, SWINTEC, SMITH-CORONA, BROTHER, CASIO, CANON, etc. These typewriters are more like word processors than a 1960's or 1970's,  electric typewriter, and more like a 1980's PC or 1990's laptop with a built-in printer.

We usually have a selection of refurbished electronic typewriters, from the earliest , to the latest models.

We usually stock electronic typewriter supplies like correctable ribbons and correcting tapes. We still have in stock some new and used type wheels with various fonts and pitches.

 

MANUAL TYPEWRITERS

We will look at the older (including vintage and antique) manual typewriters, and if all the parts are there, usually get them into working order: L. C. SMITH, CORONA, SMITH-CORONA, UNDERWOOD, ROYAL, REMINGTON, BLICKENSDERFER, etc.

We can usually tune up any manual or electric typewriter, and if it hasn't been abused, and all the parts are there, we are usually able to get it into a good working order.

We usually have a selection of refurbished, manual and electric typewriters, from the earliest, to the latest models.

We usually stock manual typewriter supplies like ribbons and if you have your spools, we can wind a new cloth ribbon on those spools, or make a new, plastic spool, fit.

We have portable, battery-operated (no cord) to thermal-operated (no ribbon) typewriters. These are all fully refurbished with a full warranty.

 

TYPEWRITER SUPPLIES

We stock an array of typewriter ribbons: cloth for older manuals and the like, and erasable ribbons and correcting ribbons for the newer typewriters. For the more popular brands of electric typewriters, we usually have a good supply of ribbons. For the older, odder, manual typewriters, it is best if you bring in the typewriter, or at least, the ribbon spools. We can rewind a new ribbon on your old spools, if necessary. We can usually do the black, black and red, and black and white (although we don't recommend the white/correctable) ribbons.

 

TYPEWRITER MUSEUM

We have our own little "museum" that contains typewriters from the last 100+ years -- including the same model that Hemingway wrote his earliest works with, that has been deemed the first "laptop". We have the early typewriters, like the BLICKENSDERFER Typewriter, that because of its radical design, was the fastest in its day: a design that is very similar to the IBM SELECTRICS of the 60's! Then there are the "BATWINGS" whose design has never been emulated. We have a lot of typewriters through mid-century, that include manuals and electrics (like the first electric models of the IBM's). This is all finished off with the IBM/LEXMARK Wheelwriters that could be attached to the early IBM computers to provide I/O. The later models of the Wheelwriters were the precursors of the modern word processors. They offered features, such as: Spell Checking, magnetic storage, auto formatting, etc.
