Busy and busier. I thought you all might like a few pics of the Underwood mid-restoration.

  1. Shiny! I'm feeling like taking out my Underwood 3 and try my hand at giving it the Magic Margin treatment...

    1. Deep and glossy. I love machines in this pre-war finish. My collection seems to coalesce around these types of typers.

    1. Fun fact: the new feet are rubber stoppers cut in half with a hole drilled through the middle. They were a cheap solution for some old fossilized feet. Thanks!
