Your Favorite Repair Shop?

Hi again, Typosphere. I know that Richard Polt has a repair-shop list (which I can't find at the moment, Richard?) I'm thinking about adding them with a special icon to our map page. If you have a favorite shop, please post their name and address in a comment and I'll include them in the map.

I'm not an official business but I've cleaned/adjusted/repaired quite a few over the past year for myself, others in the Typosphere and just random [mostly old] people who have found me. Always happy to take a look at a machine and fix it up if I can.

Oh, it's best to call Uppercase Books in Snohomish. They'll give out my number or a person can drop a machine by during business hours and the staff will call me.

In the manner of Justin, the best repair shop I know of is but a stone's throw, somewhere between the garden and the dining room. Passing trade welcome by appointment. Contact via blog, or bowkerrob [at] gmail.com

Mr Polt's site has some useful stuff too!

As far as I'm concerned (and I think I speak for a great many), it is undoubtedly Cambridge Typewriter, in the Boston area.

Tom is more than a master at the craft of typewriter repair and restoration, he's a marvelous individual with enormous patience, and humor. He serves every customer with respect and attention.
