    I'd forgotten about that! I haven't even opened the box yet. It's cold here, and the garage needs reorganized before I can even get to things. Once winter sets in, everything gets stacked around the MG, scooters, and other summer toys. The Christmas tree is blocking the workbench, and the typewriters are behind that. Glad you reminded me!

      That is one nice antique Royal typewriter there. Looks great Now the fun part is trying to type away on it.

        Boy that hurts when you say antique--that's what I learned to type on!!!! ( The Royal, not the MSUV)

          Sorry PK

          Would it hurt less if I replaced antique with the word vintage? Don't feel bad as in my attic I have one almost like this one. I used to have sore fingers after using it.

          Does anyone have a DVORAK rather than QWERTY typewritter? If memory serves they were mostly just used on Lineotype machines. Now I really am feeling old. I'm sure that PK is a young guy next to this old guy here.

            Sorry, it is an antique. Started production in 1914 and ended in the 20's.

            Vintage is the wheel seen behind it. It is attached to a 1965 Vespa 180 Super Sport (as seen in my avatar.)

            Last year, Dave stumbled upon my camera collection web page, and attached to it was my typewriters and printing press page.

            I finally dragged the Royal out for this photo before I mounted the Makita on the MSUV, but never got to it. It got cold and snowed again. Now the typewriter is wrapped back up and tucked in the corner again. The Christmas tree is still in the garage, though. I need a second garage/shop! I can't even find my stationary woodworking tools (which is part of the reason for the MSUV and MS)

            I too learned to type on manual (non-electric) typewriters, so I know to really whack on the keys. Should have seen my daughters trying to type on it, though! "Where's the back-space?"

              Believe it or not, this used to be a really nice woodworking shop. Now the tools are all piled up along the wall, the workbenches are stacked with more stuff, the power tools are in boxes under the workbench, and the hand tools are tucked away in drawers.



              For a *huge* version, click below (2.5 Mb.) See if you can identify four stationary power tools and a router table.

              BTW, it normally doesn't look quite this bad. I still had to move some junk to get the typewriter out of the corner, and during the winter, we just sort of toss stuff out there. The Christmas tree, which belongs in the upright box rear left, is still piled on the floor stage right. Normally it is more like this



              Josh, you probably should move this to the off-topic forum.
