    When you have a form that says "Do not write below this line," do you put "OK" there.

    Old typewriters are the best! Here's my 1936 Remington No. 5 Streamline...still works quite well. Love the clackety-clack that brings back vibes of old newsroom, and memories of learning how to type on my dad's Royal model. So many have been butchered for their keys, used to make bracelets, etc.

    Specialty shops still have ribbons.

    I imagine that would be hard to source these days.
