    Ahhhh ... typing paper, also in some quarters known as cartridge paper. I have rolled many a cartridge from 18 lb typing paper for both the .75 caliber Brown Bess and the .69 caliber Charleville musket, both live and blank rounds.

    Plus I have used it with and without carbon. The first typewriter I use was a 1910 Underhill that belonged to my grandfather. He bought it new when he graduated from UNC, carried to to France in 1918 and continued to use it till he gave it to me in 1968.

    So i know exactly what you speak of.

    Me Too

    Good on Ya' Steve .....We are much the same in the things you listed .....I don't have or use a cell phone.....I can't hear or understand what is being said from them......I'm at an age where I'm enjoying the simple pleasures like Drink, Food, good conversation ( if I can hear it) and Golf ......rather than the "techy" things

    What Steve said. Although I'm a bit rusty on slide rules; haven't had one in hand since about 1967. Prefer
    analog for most things. Don't own a cell phone, still use and prefer landline as they don't drop calls.

    The mini K-Bar that can be used as a decorative sgian dubh is usually marketed as a letter opener. Mine has an aluminum blade, non-functional, but the handle screams the message sticking out of kilt hose. Google "K-Bar letter opener" and you should find them.

    OK....my first thought was that a group of Hobbits had started a typewriter manufacturing firm!

    I learned to type on an Underwood manual, many, many years ago. Now it is word processor on the computer which sure simplifies things!
