Welcome to Mike Campbell's

List of Antique Typewriter Resources.

This is a list of available reproduction parts and other resources for the antique typewriter collector. As I discover resources I will be adding them to this list. If you have any original or reproduction parts for antique typewriters that you would like offer for sale to other collectors, please e-mail me with the details so that I can add them to this list. I will try to keep this list up to date with contact information. Please let me know if you have difficulty reaching any of the suppliers listed.

Disclaimer: Unless noted other wise, I have no commercial interest in the parts listed hear and provide this information as a service to the collecting community.

Parts Machines:

Collector Paul Roberts has undertaken the task of organizing a Typewriter Parts Exchange. If you are looking for original parts for a machine you are restoring, this is an excellent resource. If you have parts machines that you are willing to publicly announce then please e-mail Paul at type@mmworks.nl, so they can be added to the list and help others find the part they need to complete a restoration project. Legend has it that good karma comes to those who list their parts machines for the benefit of other collectors. A collector in California recently listed several machines on the Typewriter Parts Exchange and was soon rewarded with a Sholes and Glidden that he found at a garage sale for $15.
