"A must visit experience. Kenneth Alexander is so nice and so full of knowledge about typewriters. My brother took me there for my birthday and it was such a joy. I collect vintage typewriters, and my brother bought this beautiful Underwood Olivetti, Lettera 22 for me."

"I was gifted a Royal Quiet DeLuxe with stuck keys, a carriage that mainly returned whenever doing so seemed convenient, and all of the rubber on the platen was very cracked. In addition to all of the other issues, like a ribbon that din’t seem to move - Um. My Royal needed a bit of work. Now, this was some time ago, in 1993! When I was leaving California to strike out for college in another state, and of course, I had no real moneys to speak about, being a transfer student from California College of Arts & Crafts, and Berkeley fixed my typewriter and made it brand new! Well, made the machine work like the typewriter was new. They had shaved the platen, and cleaned and where necessary oiled whatever other bits there were. I teared up when I got it home, and I’m tearing up talking writing about it now. Thank you so much! I’m still using that Royal, though it’s obviously long overdue for a tuneup."
