I am Elweavo , or at least that is one of many names I have gone by. For now I will keep this somewhat anonymous. Look in the about me page for some basic info. thank you.
Today I ended up starting this website/blog thing and am not quite sure what I am going to do with it. I plan on sharing photos of the pottery work that I do as well as some photos of various writing I have done on my typewriter. Recently I acquired a couple of manual typewriters and have been researching them nonstop since. About 5 years ago I gave away or sold at a garage sale my old Remington portable typewriter and have regretted it ever since. I knew nothing about the typewriter at the time other than I had purchased it at a goodwill store and owned it for about 10 years I think. I never looked into purchasing a new ribbon for it as I did not think they were still available. So when it went dry I got rid of it. Then a year or so ago a good friend of mine showed me her typewriter collection and I instantly scolded myself for getting rid of that sweet little machine. Oh well such is life.
I currently am tuning up a Royal Arrow from 1939 that I bought at an antique store. Also I got ahold of a Royal Heritage typewriter that I have got working after a adjustment to the main recoil spring. I have new ribbons on the way and a repair book coming in the mail.
please let me know your feedback!
Wish me luck on wherever this Webpage takes me.
thanks for looking
