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.

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.
