Depending on how young you are, I suppose there may be some who have never used one. The last time for me was the year 2000. at the time I thought the new software programs were the greatest thing. They are very convenient, but I have begun to miss the sounds and the feel of the old typewriter!

I know what you mean by, how hard you hot the keys. I remember realizing that I was getting too tired to continue because my letters were not standing put like they normally would.
I have a Remington Quiet Model 1 from the 1940s and I also have a Corona Smith antique from around the same era. I am interested in finding out their value as well as selling them. Please contact Cindy @ 302-333-2124 with any answers or questions.

I have long nails, and hit two keys at once. I also get to typing too fast and miss spacing. Or I get to typing too soft and the letter doesn't even get pressed down. I do a lot of proofing.
Die hard typewriter fan! : )
You could probably find one at an antique shop, or the flea market.
I can still hear it in my mind.
You were one of the original word users.
Even though they are not commonly used anymore, I think it is a valuable tool to understand.
It's like the memory of cooking pinto beans...some people love it, some people hate it!
Lol. I'm sure if we were forced to use one again we would quickly begin to despise the inconvenience.
