Welcome back, W! Almost seems like you've gotten a new machine every day he's been gone :D
Thankfully it hasn't been that many! It's been consistently 3 a week though. XD But hey, it's my own strange therapy.
Ahhhh.... Another intriguing Erika. Another interesting German machine. Great find!
Sooooo much better than a Quelle rebranding of a Nakajima I just sold. :)
I bet it is! Of course, this probably cost quite a bit more too. :3
Cute. I've never tried a basket-shifted Erika.
You can probably tell by now that I've got quite an interest in them. XD There's just a special attraction I have, I find them to be very comfortable typewriters to use and the history aspect is always interesting to me.
A typewriter called Irene? Where do you dig these up from? I think your thoroughgoing approach really is making a 'collector' out of you and that's no bad thing when you turn up beauties like Irene. I sense an impromptu late summer mini-road trip coming on. Have fun both of you, happy landings and 'hi' to W.
Well, most of the different names I dug up from my searches for the DDR typewriter posts, so I know what to look out for when I do see them!I remarked on the Soemtron KsT post a while back that over the past couple of months, mostly due to the research I've been doing, I really have been turning out a proper collector after all… as long as I don't drown in typewriters I guess there's nothing wrong with that. XDMy collecting seems to get pretty involved when W's gone, and now that he's back it's nice to step back and stop stalking ebay for a while!
thank you!! it's so wonderfully amazing to be home, nothing could be better.–W
Two months! That's quite some time. Enjoy the making up and exchanging stories together.This Irene is pretty nice. Color combination is really good to. Great find!
It hasn't been the first and it won't be the last! We manage, though, but just barely it seems sometimes.I was just thinking about the color combination too, it's actually fairly similar to that of the Soemtron.
