Old techs keeping old technology alive are national treasures. Thanks for this post!

The death of the typewriter has been greatly exaggerated. See A Typewriter in 2022? The 5 Best Products for Distraction Free, Old School Writing, Averil Gleason, Knoji, December 8, 2021; and The Best Typewriter Brands - Top 18 Reviews & Rankings, October 2022.
