You Will Be Jealous!

The new school librarian came into my room today with 3 dozen of something every typewriter user needs:

New in blister-pack. Only the packaging plastic is yellowed.

According to the packaging each little clip can make over 1200 corrections. For three dozen 12 tab packages, that would be 24,000 corrections. Well, I'm set for a month.


  1. I am jealous! I'm a big fan of Ko-Rec-Type, and have a couple dispensers myself, one well-used strip sits on my desk at all times.

    You know that Bill stock 'em too?

  2. I am too. I have a couple that came with the Underwood I scored but they're about to disintegrate.

  3. Strangely, I have 3 little sheets of them. I used it for about 3 days and then resorted to x'ing again! I don't need them after all!

  4. Most of us have to be satisfied with the single sheets (and half-sheets) of this stuff we find stuck inside typewriter cases. It's always a good feeling to find those hidden in there: Score!
    You've hit the jackpot. Jealous, indeed.

  5. School librarians area great. They are the reason I acquired my precious SMC 1950s Clipper. The typewriter (with original case) was hanging out in the storage room of the school library and I wandered in there one day during work, and tah-dah! I scored!

    Ryan! thank goodness for our school librarians, right? :)
