Tools of the Trade
No job is possible without the proper tools, and no job is ever "easy" without the right tools. Whether you're a tinkerer on a budget, or an experienced mechanic, I hope to shed some light on the streamlined essentials of typewriter repair. I will cover the basic tools you'll need to get started, the more advanced tools for quality repair, and the specialty tools for specialized jobs. I will also discuss the different types of tools, general prices, places to find them, why they are useful, and brief demonstrations when needed.
My name is Lucas Dul, I'm a typewriter service and repair technician based in the Chicago Suburbs. I specialize in fixing up any machine that puts a letter on a page. My other interests include old books, fountain pens, art, and photography.
