Shangas' Guide to Buying Typewriters

http://scheong.wordpress.com/2012/12/27/buying-a-typewriter-what-you-need-to-know/

The link above goes to an article in my blog about how to buy typewriters. I wrote it when it occurred to me that there didn't appear to be any "Typewriters for Dummies" articles online (or at least, none that I could find). I post it here for the members of T.T., so that they can enjoy it. It's been well-reviewed, and I think it's been a big help to people so far. Certainly, my regular readers seem to like it.

Re: Shangas' Guide to Buying Typewriters

Fantastic stuff. I only had a brief look as I wasn't expecting such a long article, but I plan to give a good read through tonight when I have more time.

Thanks for sharing that!

Re: Shangas' Guide to Buying Typewriters

I'm glad I read that article before I posted a question. Maybe that article should be part of an FAQ on the site?


Smith Premier 4 typewriters are cool!

Re: Shangas' Guide to Buying Typewriters

I just wanted to say I read this guide before buying my machine. It was very helpful. Thank you.

Re: Shangas' Guide to Buying Typewriters

7-years late to this discussion...

The article-link is no longer valid and its author has not logged on to this forum since 2015.

Was this article saved/moved to another section of the forum ???

Re: Shangas' Guide to Buying Typewriters

No, the content that was linked to was not copied to a post here. The onus of posting information here versus supplying a link to information hosted elsewhere is on the person who created the thread (topic). This situation is representative of the ephemeral nature of most internet sources; the wealth of information that appears, only to eventually disappear from the internet, is a byproduct of people having to continuously pay money to keep it visible.

Some of the best websites on the internet - resources that are the result of years worth of research and study - will likely be forever lost when its owner ceases paying the hosting fee. It's one of the biggest negatives of the internet; can you imagine a reference library with books that simply disappear off the shelves for no reason and without warning?

Re: Shangas' Guide to Buying Typewriters

Thanks, Uwe...I was afraid that was the case.  Many discussion forums loose photos and/or links to forums with multiple software version upgrades over time.  And when Photo-Bucket changed their "free" hosting feature to a pay/fee basis, lots of photos in many other forum discussions were lost to time.

Whatever I place on Imgur.com, I have those photo-files and other attachments on my local hard drives as well.

And I am in the habit now of cut & pasting an interesting and/or informative posting on a forum over to my word-processing application, again locally on my drives.
