I equate the Remington 24 from 1967 to a Royal Empress. Both are solid machines within bulbous decorations of a shell.
This customer machine came in for service as the line lock was hanging up and the keys were sticking on the left. To get to anything, you have to remove the large plastic shell from the chassis. Normally a simple task made harder by rust at each mounting screw. One needed drilling out. After a few minutes of discovery, why there is a mouse nest under the left side type bars!
What came in as a simple adjustment became a laundry list of things to do. I have a very understanding customer. It turns out the rust from the nest corroded through 24 type bar return springs along with rusting together many other links and levers. I love how deep into the chassis those springs go. After replacing all those springs, it was fun getting everything back together and running nice.
