I would like to buy a vintage typewriter, I was looking at the Royal DeLuxe Portable typewriters. But to tell the thruth, I know almost nothing about the subject and am scared that if I buy one off Ebay, I'll get ripped off or it won't work properly. What are the best models, and where can I buy ribbon (I was think Amazon?) ? What is usually the going price of for a typewriter ?

I have a typewriter.  They're really cool, but for me the lack of backspace makes it more trouble than it's worth.  Good ribbons are hard to find; Amazon might be a source, but often old ribbons are all dried out and useless, so be careful. 
 
Sorry, I don't know anything about prices or quality of different kinds.  Hope you find a good one!

lol If you need more help, watch Disney's Tarzan. It'll show how it can also be used in musical segments.
