Where can I find a typewriter?

Recommended Posts

Looking to buy a manual typewriter in Sheffield, does anyone know where I can hold of one?

 

Thanks in advance.

I threw one away last year - an imperial....it went thru me but I hadn't used it in about 15 years and couldn't think when I'd ever need it again nor that it would be valuable or have any value to anyone in this day and age, how wrong was I?

Have a look on Freecycle- I've seen dozens on there in the last year or so.

Freecycle is a good idea, I'll have a look later on tonight.

we have an old electric one at work that we just can't bring ourselves to throw out. Its pretty big and heavy though - it has a screen, so you can type a sentence first and 'check' it for mistakes before pressing the button and printing.

 

If you are interested I can make some enquiries ? It is big & heavy tho'. Proably about 10 years since it was last used.

Think I've Got An Electric One Kicking About The House You Can Have. Think It's A Smith Corona.
