A Recent acquisition and more Gigantor

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.

  1. Very pretty blue typewriter. Perhaps you can rebuild the missing rack tooth with J-B Weld epoxy. I have found it to be very strong and it can be sanded, drilled, and shaped after hardening.
