I Never Tire of Reading a Typewriter Repairman Article

I came across this article about a Staten Island repairman.

Here's one image, courtesy of DNAInfo.com New York, but there are some others and a little video worth checking out.

I'd really love to see these pockets of repairman start sending more platens out for recovering. I'd think they could increase the cost of their wares to offset the cost of the platen and then all of us could benefit from the lower price...or maybe that's just a dream similar to Mr. Ardio's.

Good story. I've added him to my list of repair shops.

I think it's great that he runs it out of his house. A labor of love, that is. Thanks for sharing this.
