Congratulations on the nice typewriter. I often wonder why people seldom if ever take the time to respool ribbons onto the originals.
Thank you. It could be explained by laziness/convenience if the new spools fit but when they do not allow you to type properly - it is astonishing...
"Tombstone keytops" never heard that before! Lovely typewriter.
I read that description somewhere and it seems to describe them quite well :)
I love that particular design and I still don't have one.
Congratulations, that's got all the hallmarks of a film noir typer.
Thank you! Yes, it has a sort of a dark aura around it.
