it's been a while

  1. Is the ICO yours? It sure is a beautiful pristine machine.

    I have never seen a Hermes any model with Vogue type face. I thought that was unique to Royal.

    Nice thing about working on a Hermes is the great engineering. Bad thing about giving a 3000 a thorough cleaning is the need to remove the carriage to remove the housing.

  2. Good to hear from you. I am sure you are ultra-busy!

    That's not Vogue, it's what's commonly called techno, unless my eyes deceive me. Vogue is more rounded.

    If you go out with a baby AND an Olivetti ICO, you will have women all over you. ;)

  3. Bill - i am the proud owner of the ico. it was cleaned/repaired before i bought it and ive no complaints about it, although i would like to tighten up the backspace a bit so its more responsive. the misalignment - i actually have found i like.
    as for the hermes 3000, ive heard of the pain it takes to clean and repair this machine - one day ill be brave enough to do it!

    Richard - right you are about techno. im so rusty with this typewriter stuff that i flubbed it up and meant techno but instead wrote out vogue without a second thought.
    i love this ico - its so small, like my little one - and both irresistible to the females :)

  4. Nice to see you are still well and happy. blog when you can, no pressure.

  5. You're the second blogger from Southern CA to come out of hiding after a long absence recently. Must be something in the water. Good to see your post!

  6. An outstanding share! I've just forwarded this onto a friend who had been doing a little homework on this. And he actually bought me breakfast simply because I discovered it for him... lol. So let me reword this.... Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending the time to talk about this topic here on your site.
