Thanks for this, Amelia.

I've never explored Google Docs before. It looks very useful.

When I get the time, I'll start uploading some of my scans.

Amelia: Thank you for sharing this! I'd say about 50% of the typewriters I've come across require some kind of repair. I wouldn't claim to have any mechanical aptitude (though I've managed to 'fix' a few) so I'm grateful to have as much help as I can get. This looks like a great resource. Cheers!

I'm glad you guys like it.
I actually don't own this book (sells for way too much $).
I checked it out from the local library a while back and scanned the parts that were of interest to me (left out electric typewriters and the last two chapters that focused on specific typewriter models).

As soon as I get over this awful flu http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/cry.png
, I will start scanning and posting more stuff.

I recently acquired another book
(refer to this post http://typewriter.boardhost.com/viewtopic.php?pid=674#p674).
If you see anything in the table of contents you might want scanned, please submit a request and I will do my best. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png

Thanks Amelia - lots of my questions got answered with just a quick skim through the repair book.

Hey! I am rather new to this forum, but I have been looking for this book for a long time! Thanks so much for posting it. I was wondering if you still had the book? I am hoping to get chapter 3 as well, since I have an electric I would like to be able so service also. 
Thanks again!!

Hi there. My apologies for getting around to this so late. Unfortunately, I've already returned the book to the library. Have you tried checking it out from your local library?
