Tell us a little more about your inspiration. I bought this manual typewriter in 1991 while living in Nonthaburi, near Bangkok, Thailand. This was because we kept on having power blackouts, which stopped me from writing on my electric typewriter. So I figured if I had a manual typewriter as a standby, I wouldn't have to stop working when the power went out. I had it until recently, when I found it gathering dust under a table. I gave it to a friend who collects such things, but first, I painted it, so I would always have it with me.
