Hey everyone!

I’m Jon, people call me Norm though. I teach computer applications classes in North Carolina and have had a fascination with typewriters and typing since I can remember. It led me to computers of course, but over the past few years I’ve been yearning to get back to my roots and on a typewriter. I’ve eyed a few beauties but was always a little apprehensive about pulling the trigger. My wife decided she’d heard enough about it and picked up an Underwood Finger-Flite Champion for me. I think it’s from 50s-early 60s. Have to do some research on it.

Outside of an issue I’m having with it, which I may post about in the appropriate part of this forum, I really like the machine. Very nice looking and it just feels welcoming. Hoping I can get it in full working order soon.

I hope to learn from you all, can’t wait to see your machines and hear your stories, many of you have been at this a way longer time than others and I’m sure you have some great ones.

Happy holidays!
