This is one of the typewriters I bought at Herman’s this year. The 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.
I will be heading to West Virginia tomorrow for the 9th annual Typewriter Gathering in Morgantown, West Virgina.
I am looking forward to seeing everyone attending.
Sorry for nothing new for awhile.
Anyway this is a recent craigslist find. A 1907 Remington 7. You may be wondering what is going on with the left hand platen knob. Well it is original and appears to be some sort of line indicator.
I plan to enter this machine in the speed typing contest at the 9th Annual Typewriter Gathering in Morgantown, WV.
Recently I have acquired some more typewriters. Here are a few of them.
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.
A few weeks ago I got this
A 1927 Remington Portable 2 in the uncommon navy blue. It works well with one exception. The escapement rack has a missing tooth, so every time it hits that spot it will skip. I will either have to repair it or find a replacement.
As requested here is Gigantor with a extra wide piece of paper.
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.
