I have been doing a clean out of the cupboards and came across an old electric typewriter. It used to go but had stopped for some reason, plus I had internet, so put it away.
However, my very elderly Mum does not, nor would she be able to understand the Net. Being severely crippled with arthritis in her hands and fingers, I wondered about getting it going and giving it to her so she doesn't have to write - agony for her!
Your thoughts please. If it could be fixed, how and where would I take it? Or - should I just bin it? No idea what alternative there is for her so any thoughts on that would be welcome as well. Thanks
Some old electric typewriters stopped because they gather dust in the innards that stops the reader from working. I don't know if you rate yours electric or electronic, but give it a vacuum out and clean the bar the carriage slides on with some light machine oil, like you would use on a sewing machine. Then try plugging it in. I think ribbons are still available for some brands.
Did you know, that what you thought I said, was not what I meant :S
