Three P’s a partyyyyy

Prototype one -pffffft.
I used the knob from Blimey as a master mould…
PFFFFFT. Moulded mess.
Ah, functional rollers at last!  The typecast proves rollers are magic.
I have to start using this guy more.
*Little tick off my to-fix-list, insert little dance*
I’m thoroughly party pooped. Hope you’re having a great time everyone!

Typed on freshly repaired Verdell, 1931 vogue typeface Royal Model P with tabulator, in dire need of a ribbon change and typeslug clean out.

  1. Lovely model P’s. Thanks for giving them an outing and showing them to us. They remind me of my red vogue model P incarcerated in the dungeon awaiting a re-paint. It’s time to rehabilitate it and give it a go in the halfway house of machines vying for a position in the letter-writing rotation. Your typecast also unfortunately inspires me to acquire more machines with interesting fonts – an interest in typefaces has given me yet another excuse to collect.


    1. You’re re-painting your Model P? I can’t wait to see that!
      Hahaha, I’m sorry! Welcome to the typeface hording, may the typefaces find you in the cheapest possible prices ;)


  2. PPPerfection! :D
    Good job on the roller replacement and it was at least a game attempt and fabricating a new knob. Even a failed attempt teaches us something about new methods that’s valuable for our future attempts (:


  3. Lovely Ps….beautiful job cleaning them up! I love that vogue typeface all over again everytime I see it; almost as much as the Graphika typefaces :) Where do you get the replacement feed rollers? Do they come in different sizes?


    1. Thanks Inky! :D
      Vogue is one of my favourite typefaces, but I really should use all the other machines on my shelf too! A Graphika would be great, but I’m very content with what I have now ;)
      I bought rubber hosing from an auto shop in three different sizes. Just wrote up a blog post about it!
