Hi:

I'm having trouble finding typewriter erasers. You used to be able to find them in any office supply store, but it has come to the point where if you ask about them you get really strange looks. I even had a kid in Office Depot sya, "Yeah e've got that." and then take me to an aisle with White Out. Definitely not the ticket. If you know what I'm wanting them for then you may know of an alternative tool or method. I sure would like to find something before one of my favorite gaffs wear out.
Thanks in advance.

Are you looking for the cassette type or the paper sheet type?

Stores that may sell drafting supplies (yes people still do hand drafting) sell electric erasers - the motor spins an eraser at high speed. I have used this sort of a machine for the very purpose I think you are looking for.

I found a battery operated one on Amazon:

They have lots of other types to select from.

Happy erasing....
