Arrow Unsheathed

The baby was ill, so I stayed home with him today. During a long nap, I took the dog outside and decided to start cleaning the Arrow. The weather is warm and working outside was nice. I really don't want to remove the platen to clean the machine. It is dirty, but the platen and carriage is significantly cleaner than the body. The plan it to have it clean before the Phoenix Typewriter Round-Up which is happening on March 5th. If I can't get it done before that, I have plenty of other typewriters that I can bring.

  2. Certainly I'm not the only one who at first thought the "baby" that was "ill" was going to end up being your typewriter. I feel so ashamed.

  4. Hope the baby is feeling better. Any other typecasters coming to the type-in that you know of?

  5. There are a few. One of the stars of the Phoenix typewriter repair scene, Bill Wahl, has confirmed. There have been a few others. It's going to be a smallish gathering, but that is exactly what it's all about.
