    Are ribbons for typewriters even still available? Probably not cheap?

    They seem to be an easy find on eBay, somebody is still making them. Seems to be a substantial collectors hobby in antique typewriters, Tom Hanks being a prominent one himself.

    Over the past 2 weeks, I have all of the walls down that opened up the new space. Fortunately, I was able to use those sections to frame the new space for my wife’s hobby room.

    That now created a ew problem, now the cats like to crawl around the staging yard and knock cars over. I fixed everything and a week later they did it again. Time to kick the wall framing and finishing into high gear so I can keep them out before I go insane!

    I did a google search for old typewriter font the other day. There are free ones to use with word programs.

    a number of them. Some were pretty good.
