    Thanks for the kind words--but that is definitely not my actual birthday! I don't share that on forums, because I am kind of trying to not get "outed" as autistic publicly LOL.

    Understandable, and my date is different too, lol. I thought you were going to tell me that is actually not a typewritten text the moment I started reading your reply. xD

    LOL nah, the screech owl is pretty cool though! You can't have nature without some screech owls here and there; they are cute. And I am actually rebuilding that exact same model of typewriter as in that picture. It is an Underwood No. 5. Slow process--lots of little parts.

    How did you get the parts?

    Mostly the little parts are all still in there, but if they're missing I have to either make them myself (ballpoint pen springs, shoelaces, bicycle inner tubes, etc.) or scavenge from completely "dead" typewriters of that same model.

    That's some epic tinkering. I enjoy repairing things with parts. I accidentally broke a mouse, not knowing that it requires the light to actually function, i was trying to make it dark, then i fixed it back up, I fixed an electric shaver and usually things don't make a link well somewhere but I love making them work.

    Rexi, I am really impressed you do your own electric/electronic repairing. That's pretty neat! It's a perfect Aspie hobby--take something, make it new again.
