6th Phoenix Type-In


If you were in the mood to meet like-minded typewriter enthusiasts, this might be your event. So mark your calendar for May 23rd from 1-4 for some spring typing fun.

I would also like to take a moment and recognize our kind sponsors: First Draft at Changing Hands and the Mesa Typewriter Exchange. Without them this event would not be possible.

  2. Hi,

    I recently came across your site which is extremely insightful and wondered if you could give me a bit of advice on how to handle the follow:

    I received a typewriter recently from ebay and it had paint splashes on it. As I'm not the one that got the paint on there I'm not sure what kind of paint it is but it is white. I was wondering if you had any tried and tested methods to get paint off of the machine without damage the original colour or body?
    I really hope to hear back from you so I can get the typewriter back to its former glory!

    1. Joe, getting splashes off is very difficult. What type of paint is on there? Is the original paint shiny or matte? Be prepared to repaint if necessary. Of course, you can call it your Pollock-writer and make the blemish a feature.
