DIY Friday: Typewriter Keyboard

I’m moving soon, and as I’m sorting through my old junk, there are still some things I can’t part with. One of them is an old typewriter that I got from my uncle. It doesn’t work anymore, but I can’t quite bring myself to throw it away. And now, my years of pack-rat behavior may have paid off, because I just found a way to rig up that old typewriter as a new computer keyboard. You can also check out this page for instructions. And if you’re looking for some real inspiration, take a look at this sweet custom brass version. If you don’t already have an old Underwood sitting in your closet, there’s no shortage of manual typewriters on eBay.
