The Remington 7 is complete.
It is back to operational status after a quick two day cleaning.
I have decided to put a up a photo of a machine that I got at Hermans but have not said anything about.
My 1897 Smith Premier 2
I have neglected to post anything on it as I am. waiting on the arrival of some parts for it as the carriage frame is cracked in half. I have glued the current carriage frame but it is warped and because of that the carriage will not work properly.
Remember the part from yesterday
What it is is the pinion gear and starwheel from the 1907 Remington 7.
I am in the process of restoring this machine like it deserves as it needs the 109 years of crud removed. It’s quite a job.
As you can see the typebar hoop has been polished along with the typebars. There is new felt in the hoop as well.
This is a part from one of my typewriters.
If you think that you know what it is please reply in the comments with “I know” as to not spoil it for others.
I will reveal the identity of this piece tomorrow.
