...typing for peace, democracy, and the glory of the Typosphere
I watched this before work today and did not get time to comment. Thank you for posting the very nice video. It is those shops that make this hobby so very interesting.
Thank you so much for posting this! I've had a rough day and this just put a smile on my face!
THANK YOU for posting this! I had not seen it, so it's new to me. I'm going to make an effort to visit that shop now (I live within an hour's drive). I'm always encouraged to see someone who had a business which lasted for so long, despite the prospect of becoming obsolete. That's dedication.
The parts basement is the most amazing thing I have ever seen!
Wonderful. And new to me! Thanks.
I hadn't seen that, Rob. Thanks for sharing that. Fantastic.
thanks for the repost typewriter heaven! we're glad you like it :)
It certainly does - thanks for posting. New to me too.
Great to see and hear about. I have said to friends, who tell me to get a laptop, "I can type outside, anywhere, til the Sun goes down, and there's no battery to die-out. And I never have to worry about the machine 'crashing', and losing what I have written. My old typewriters are part of the art-form of writing; the tools of an art-form never become obsolete. I am grateful to people like Jesse Flores, and his son, for carrying-on, for all of us who typewrite.
Thank you! I have been looking for someone to fix my '35 Corona. Nicely documented and well done video.
Love the story of the repair shop and the backdrop of the relationship between the father and son. Where are they? I have at least three typewriters I need fixed; a Remington Noiseless, two Hermes Baby Rockets (1964) one is missing the right platen knob, and a checkup for my beloved Olympia SM-9. Where are they located???
I hear Jesse passed away but son Reuben was still running it. Here's the address. Good luck!U.S. OFFICE MACHINES5722 N. Figueroa StreetHighland Park, California 90042Phone: +1 323-256-2111
