Palm Springs type-in March 19

UPDATE:

"Previously I had announced that Jack Lacy was having a "Type-In"
at his store in Palm Springs on February 20th, but the date has been moved
to March 19th. Jack has been in the family business all his life, his
grandfather having opened a typewriter repair shop in Los Angeles in 1919.
He will have a number of vintage machines on display and for sale, and
everyone is invited to bring his or her portable and type away, or just
exchange stories. Jack has some good ones to tell, along with photographs of
his grandfather in his Los Angeles store. And he'll be serving hot dogs and
hamburgers. The location is as follows: 

Central Printer Resources

4599 E Ramon Rd

Palm Springs CA 92264

760-778-4444

You can also email Jack at jacklacy@lasrink.com for further information, and
to get on the email update list. He'd especially like to know how many are
coming. Should be a really fun event!

Earlier message:

From a correspondent:

Central Printer Resources, 4599 E Ramon Road, Palm Springs, CA 92264, 760-778-4444. 

"I visited this shop and the owner, Jack Lacy, has been in the typewriter business his entire career and loves to talk typewriters. He still repairs old typewriters and he has a number of refurbished vintage machines for sale. He told me his grandfather, Clifford Sanders, opened a typewriter repair shop in Los Angeles in 1919. His father and uncle were in the business, too, and not only has he had a shop for many years, but also worked for SCM for many years. He knows his machines and loves helping those who love old typewriters. On February 20th he's having a "type-in" at his store, all welcome to bring their machines, share stories, and type, while enjoying refreshments. He'll be telling some stories from the old days. He also has an experienced typewriter technician on site, George Torres, and he also has a source in Los Angeles for fabricating parts that are no longer availability. Looks to be a good resource."
