Mother of the Child gave me a restored 1907 Remington Model 10 typewriter for Christmas.

1907 Remington Model 10 Typewriter

I feel some old, old school steampunk coming on with that baby.

Oh, boy. I used to work on one of those back in the Old Stone Age when I was a two-gun, er, two-fingered newspaper hack. Brings back the memories.

Oh, cool! I go back to manual typewriters.

Is this your first time typing on a manual (in years or ever)? Do you find it difficult to strike the keys with enough force and/or does it significantly slow down your typing?

Since early college. First computer ca 1984.

Do you find it difficult to strike the keys with enough force and/or does it significantly slow down your typing?

Nice! Where will you get ribbons?

I've been looking for a source for ribbons for my Remington Model 5 for years...

You watch out for that newfangled 20th century technology. Someday those machines will replace people -- and stories will write themselves. You just wait and see.

Wow. That's even older than the one I learned to type on (which is saying something).
