Nice! I;m going to be attempting NaNoWriMo this year on my KMM. I've decided to actually giver it a shot. If I don't make it, at least I tried, AND I'll have a new story to work on!
I would love to see a post on a carbon ribbon adjustment for the SG! Although I don't own any carbon ribbons, if I did it would probably be used in my SG1.My skyriter was actually my first typewriter! I used to play on my mothers Selectric III when I was a kid but that doesn't count. The skyriter was the first typewriter I bought on my own and is actually really quick and precise for its size. It was what started the ball rolling. It's sad though with the SG1 being my workhorse none of my others get used as much as they should. In that respect, I love hearing about your kindness and bringing of joy to people in need.
Matt, good for you. Let's check in on each other's progress regularly.James, I've just posted instructions for the SG1 adjustment. -- Those '50s Skyriters are very sturdy, good little travel writers. The original owner of this one told me that he actually did bring it on airplanes, just as the name recommends.
