The title of this blog was inspired by my typewriters. An early motivation for my collecting--to rescue typewriters that were in danger of being discarded and to restore each of them to good working condition--has been an objective for all of my machines: to make them type again, hence "Re-Typing."

Machine with a history...


  1. Welcome, George. You're off to a wonderful start in your tlogging and you've a fascinating collection to base your comments on. You'll be right at home here and I'm looking forward to spending many hours here, thus effectively combining "perfectionism and procrastination". Thanks.

  2. Welcome Michael. I hope whatever I'm doing doesn't waste too many hours--especially other people's!

  3. These Coronas were so popular in their day -- I'm sure yours got lots of loving use. I do find them difficult to use today, though, due to the 3-bank keyboard you mention and due to the wear and tear on their delicate parts.

  4. Thank you very much for this useful article. I like it. Blog Comments …….. Link Building

    1. Thank you, historypak! It has been a while since I've seen a comment on this blog. My attention has been on other things lately and I'm very pleased to see that it still has some relevance. These old machines still have a usefulness and appeal which is apparently quickly evolving.
