Just won an E-Bay auction for a Hermes 3000 with script font! Got it cheap because it is missing the right platen knob, but thanks to the typosphere I know how to make a new one, lol. That's it for the buying for a while. Now I can spend my time worrying if the three I have bought are going to arrive in one piece, and start cleaning them up when they arrive. Then on to typecasting! I am also a bit concerned about my USB typewriter kit, since there has been no communication beyond acknowledgement of my order, and I am really hoping to get it by Christmas.
