    I had it cleaned and serviced semi-recently (about six months ago?) by a local friend who's a bit of a typewriter nerd (and a published author---look for Frederic S. Durbin on Amazon). It's a spiffy little thing and types really well for a little portable. My daughter borrowed it for a while but then realized she's not fond of how hard you have to push the keys (ha ha--your generation doesn't know the struggle!), so it's back in my possession!

    Btw, how is that typewriter doing?

    Ah, I've seen them (and bought them) much cheaper than that. Which is why I have several. I was probably just trying to get rid of the 2000 since I had Neos. Seriously, all I need is an address and I can send it along. They're lightweight and are therefore easy enough to send...

    I would not say no to it, but you did send me a 2000 back when P/S2 ports were still a thing. So I don’t want to impose. I did have to retire it but it did help on school papers while I had it.

    But yeah, eBay is exactly where I was looking at buying one. I have several Neo2s on my watchlist that are listed as new for under $75.
