Spring is Nigh

Spring has nearly sprung,
The grass has almost riz,
And North Idaho is certainly where the Fox is.

This season, prepare for a series of posts detailing the tips and tricks I've learned over the years in regards to the vague art of restoring typewriters.

Not relating to that series, but indeed relating to restoration, sometimes you just have to put some new paint on. I found a good color of Rustoleum to paint these horridly corroded type-bars with, and am pleased with the results.

As far as I was ever aware, typebars were generally nickel-plated with a dull finish, and in most cases that seems to be the first plating to go bad.
