We first met Terry just over a year ago when we went to see him with a troublesome Olivetti typewriter and asked him to give it a service and repair it . Since then we have seen him pretty well every week and the assortment and variety of typewriters has grown and grown.
Terry ( Cooksley ) runs the Antique Typewriter Service here in Sydney and has spent his whole life repairing and servicing typewriters . He trained as a typewriter technician in London from the age of 18 and arrived in Sydney in 1961 . As he is now fast approaching his 75th Birthday that's well over 50 years of typewriter experience !
We love sitting in his workshop amongst masses of typewriter parts and discussing different models , features and functions over a cup of coffee . Terry has plenty of stories of going into the big banks and offices and their typing pools in Sydney's CBD in the 60's to service the many typewriters and although things have obviously changed since then he is currently busier than ever ( we like to think we may have had something to do with that ).
Terry has a fine collection of typewriters himself , many of which he has restored . If you have a typewriter in need of a good service or even complete restoration give Terry a call on 02 9628 0493 and have a chat .
Here at Charlie Foxtrot its wonderful to work with someone with such amazing experience and to know that Terry can ensure that the typewriters we offer are ready to give many more years of great service.
