I love the 1930’s typewriter styles, especially the Remington’s. This sweet machine came into the shop for general maintenance and a few age related problems. Remington, as part of their attempt to “quiet” the machine, applied a heavy tar substance behind the paper tray. Well, after so much time it oozed onto the tab rack and needed removal.
As with many machines of this age the paper rollers had flattened and paper feed was not so good. In my quest to make paper rollers a permanent fix, I made seven rollers on the lathe rather than recover the old cores with rubber. Paper feed forever!
After a good cleaning, getting the goo off and the new rollers, this beauty types great!
