  1. It's great that you are able to start students out on typewriters and later provide them with the machine of their choice.

    I know about personal preference. My Adler J4 has become mine. I like all the different ones I have, but even my Hermes 3000 machines are not as smooth as the Adler. Neither is the carriage on my Facti TP1. Perhaps I need to fully disassemble and restore the 3000s even though my first one is like new.

    The Facit? I do not know if I want to tackle taking that carriage fully apart.

  2. I got my Facit TP1 literally about 30 minutes ago, and am very very impressed -- I can't imagine a carriage smoother than this one!

    The story of Javier is wonderful. Thanks for sharing that, Ryan.

  4. I know what my pick would have been---that copper Ambassador you've got! I became a fully-fledged typewriter owner when I went off to law school and needed something to type two 1500-word briefs on every week, something that wouldn't hurt my hands. I bought myself a Hermes 3000, and even though I've met many amazing machines, I remain to the core a Hermes loyalist.
