Check out this beautiful, fetishistic vintage typewriter repair kit:

I borrowed it from my friend Andrew Leman, (actor, prop builder, graphic designer, typographer, and filmmaker) who got it to use in an upcoming Lovecraft film he’s producing. I used some of the tools to straighten bars in my vintage typewriters. Now he wants his kit back, so I thought I’d better take some photos of them first. I love the little compartment for the three parts drawers.
