This is one of the typewriters I bought at Herman’s this year.┬áThe 1920s Remington Vertical Adder Model – 21.

I have purchased it from Connor Brumfield. When I bought it the adding function did not work, so I brought it out to the back porch repair session at Herman’s. Where me and a few others tried in vain to get the adding mechanism working to no avail.

When I got back I managed to get it mostly working but the 6 keys still is frozen. It will also have to have the feed rollers redone at some point.

A Tale Of Two Royals

Recently I have acquired some more typewriters. Here are a few of them.HO9A1002.png

1938 Royal KHM #2178944

This typewriter was purchased from a antique store for $30 haggled down from $85.

1952 Royal KMM #4820305

This typewriter was given to me by my Grandfather after he found it in a apartment he was cleaning. As you can see by the photo it has been rebuilt at some point in time (plastic keys).

As I was away on International Typewriter Day I did not get to post anything typewriter related then, so as a consolation please enjoy these pictures of my 1918 Underwood 5 that I got from Ian Brumfield in a trade at the 8th Annual Typewriter Gathering in Morgantown, WV, U.S.A.

Carriage and top deck have been restored. The main frame and keylevers have not been done yet.

If anyone out there has a LC Smith parts machine with a 18 inch carriage please let me know, I am in need of the large rack gear underneath the carriage.
