A Brother-ly Post













After reading a post by Will Davis about a very mysterious Webster, I decided to look at the CTP collection. When I really started looking there were actually quite a few. Many are rebrands, but two are the real-deal.

    1. That was pretty easy to replacing this linkage. Lots of little screws and c-clips. I nearly lost an eye, but it was all for the greater good. It works perfectly.

  5. So many Brother posts lately...and here, I gave my only Brother away! To my brother, no doubt. The kid (12) has been using it for school papers and the like.

    1. Giving a typewriter is the surest way of letting the universe know that you are ready to accept one. Is your brother liking the Brother?

  6. Well, before I loved my keyboard, typewriter became my best friend (despite the constant change of cartridge that I need to do due to my overflowing love to it). Then customized pens came, I still felt the need to grasp my Brother. Yeah, nostalgic much.
