Wow, fantastic venue, and fantastic machines they had on display! I'm amazed at the Sholes & Glidden, complete with sewing machine-style cabinet and "throttle pedal!". And the crates for the old desktops! I spy a "Remington Typewriter" crate there. Impressive!I'll have to find a good carpenter (or try to remember what my dad taught me about carpentry) and try to build some crates like those... old-style, of course, with good dovetail or cabinet finger joints!
M1, M20, Ico - the holy trinity.
Looks like a wonderful place to visit. It is great that you got to attend such a meeting. I think one of the high spots would be getting to see a real live and in-person (or in-typewriter) Writing Ball.
Wish I could have attended one of these meetings when I was there. Great photos!
just wow! :D
This definitely was a super event - I took some close-ups of the tools here: http://schreibmaschinenbasel.blogspot.ch/2013/02/nutzliches-werkzeug-zur.htmlI hope this workshop series continues - I am sure it will after the big success it met at this premiere.
Wauw, very nice display of typewriters!
Oh, my goodness... What an amazing array of machines. Did you actually get to touch any of the rarities?
What fun! Thanks for sharing.
Thanks for all of your comments!Visiting the museum and the workshop were great experiences. I didn't get to type on the Malling-Hansen ;), but most of the machines weren't behind glass. A Klein-Adler on the sales shelf was the only machine I actually wrote on, though.
