On the spectacular "Things Organized Neatly" Tumblr, an anonymous submission of a very neatly disassembled typewriter.
SUBMISSION: This is an old typewriter I had the pleasure to dismantle today :) hope you like it!
I looked as close as I could but could not spot the Social Media button. Any help?
Someday, I want to Knoll Boing Boing.
Every time these pop up, I can’t NOT focus on the subtle (and sometimes not) alignment errors.
This one’s especially aggravating, because the left half of the typebar linkages are spread out, while the right half are bunched together. Grrrr!
Wait until he puts it back together and finds a piece leftover
I tried that trick with an old copier that I dismantled just to see what it would be like to actually recycle office machines these days. The results were only barely knolled, and the parts count was astoundingly high.
Nice knowing that people are still doing this…I’ve recovered a rusty Underwood from the collection of one of the Firesign Theatre guys, and may need to go all Derrida on its ass.
Wow! Score! Be sure to take off your shoes first.
Also, stay away from the bug powder.
