Craftster user Blueblythe created this incredible felt replica of a vintage Underwood Noiseless typewriter. This was the first typewriter I ever owned -- I got a 1920s-vintage model from my Dad, who'd rescued it from the offices of the Communist group he belonged to, where it had been used to publish a Trotskyist news-sheet -- and I never forgot the incredible heft and solidity, and the industrial gravitas of the machine.
