Procrastinating my writing by way of typecasting...
Do you find that non-skid shelf "paper" to work well? I seem to recall some that had a slight adhesive to it but haven't seen it since...all I can come up with is the kind that has no stickiness whatsoever.
I think the non-skid shelf paper works well. I use it on my lap desk, normal desk and kitchen table under all my typewriters that don't grip well. It holds them all in place. None of the one's I use have any adhesive on them, just a lot of friction due to the rubberiness.The ONLY issue I have found is with a heavier typewriter. The feet of my SG1 flattened the sheet I was using. It didn't appear to affect performance (i.e. SG1 did not move), but since its so cheap to replace, I just did it.I got this last batch at Menard's, so maybe that will help?
Fantastic! I have a bunch of that laying around.
Yeah, I'd give it a try. For a non-permanent fixture under a typewriter of for the lighter ones, this should work fine. A lot of mine (even my Lettera 32) shifts a as I tab or pull the carriage return lever and these sheets (cut to size) work great.For my SG1, I have a sheet cut that sits on top of a giant mouse pad. The mouse pad deadens the noise (as the SG1 is on a steel typing table) and the non-skid stuff prevents it from sliding. I thought the mouse pad would work by itself, but there was still some slight movement.
