Typewriters: Underwood Champion

March 15th, 2020

My Underwood Champion from the 1940s.

It’s rusty and well-used, but works like a dream thanks to Marr Office Machines in Pawtucket Rhode Island. Picked this up for about $20, got it spiffed up, and I write rough on it and love the aggressive pounding it takes.

I alternate between a few typewriters, depending on a variety of things (do I have to change a ribbon right now? Why pause? I just grab another typewriter.)  All the typewriters I own (about 7?) are working typewriters and I use them all over any given 12 month period.

Excuse the mess on my work table.
