A royal Royal

Last week I ventured out to Alliance, OH to purchase this typewriter.IMG_0328.JPG

A 1933 Royal 10 with decimal tabulator. This is the third incarnation with segment shift. It was missing one of the windows when I got is so my other royal 10 became a donor for now.


I have also been cleaning up this Underwood 5 from 1915 for a local shop.

Here are two new typewriters that have not arrived yet.


A family Friend said they had a old typewriter they wold like to give me. It is this LC Smith no 5. I do not know when I will receive it (they live far away). but next time they are in town they will bring it by.

I have also purchased one of my wish list typewriters. A LC Smith Super-Speed. Readers that have visited The Typewriter Database may know that I already own a super speed with a 5cpi typeface that was rescued from the keychopper scrap heap. As that one is a large typeface machine and is missing they keys (always looking for a parts machine). I have wanted a standard typeface one for a long time. It should arrive sometime this week.

Remington 7: part 2

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.

Mystery Part Identity

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.

Remington Vertical Adder Model – 21

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.
