Crazy Eights

Today I went on a trip to buy a Royal KMM, which has a little surprise


It’s a teaching typewriter!

The keys are all blank as the intent is to force the user to touch type instead of looking at the keyboard. I also snagged a not so little friend.


Behold Gigantor!

You cannot tell from the photo but this LC Smith 8 (yes I know I just bought one) has an 18 inch carriage. Hence the name Gigantor. The main use I will have for it is to type two letters at the same time! Another name that would fit it very well would be rust bucket. It’s very rusty, so to fix this it is getting a full restoration.
