AUSTIN, Texas — Everett Henderson's job keeps him connected with his computer. But, he's more at home on a 100-year-old typewriter.

He turned his garage into a workstation in order to restore the old machines. Henderson owns more than 100 typewriters, many of them from the 1920s. 

"I often will pull them completely apart. I'll find people's fingerprints on the inside from when they painted it. Somebody left with black paint from the factory that day and it's still here. There's something about that," said Henderson.

He says there's also something about the feel of an old typewriter that today's electronic keyboards don't have. But Henderson hasn't tossed his computer just yet. He uses it to connect with others who also share a love for typewriters.

"I thought I was the one weird guy over here collecting typewriters. I've found a whole group of people collecting typewriters in Dallas, Austin and Houston," said Henderson.

He, along with fellow collector David Torres, started a group called Austin Typewriter, Ink. They help spread the love of old typewriters with type-ins. That's where people gather in a room filled with typewriters for them to try out. 

"We want you to touch them. We want you to put your hands on them. We want you to experience that tactile feel, that sound you hear, the clickity-clack. Its just an amazing thing. There's something about ink on paper. You can keep it forever," said Torres.
