|Correspondence from A Machine for the End of the World. Thanks Anna!|
|Way better handwriting than my own...|
|Very cool carriage and roller release levers.|
|Plastic ribbon covers that are impractical, but make the design fluid and awesome.|
|Cool gear mechanism for the typebars.|
Nice machine! I found one of its earlier predecessors recently (as noted on my blog). The levers and ribbon covers on this later model are very stylish.ReplyDelete
Good work with the springs. I find it very satisfying to find or fashion a replacement spring that brings a typewriter back to life.
I saw that on your blog and it's stunning. I had already won mine on eBay when you posted yours. Hell of a craigslist find. Yours has the red scale which I am a huge fan of.Delete
That Remie 5 looks handsome.The typebars cover has an interesting skin, almost looks leather grain. Very nice close-ups too,ReplyDelete
It's that good old crinkle paint.Delete
Thanks, it's why I chose the point-and-shoot I did. It's an Olympus SP-510UZ and has a huge macro lens built in. I also collect coins so I needed it for that.
I have one just like that. It's a nice, eye-catching machine. Great for public typing.ReplyDelete
Ooooh, What a lovely machine! Love that close-up of the typebars/gear!ReplyDelete
Also, glad to see the correspondence found its way to you!
It was pretty exciting getting it. I might put yours together tonight.Delete
Great machine and correspondence. It is nice to know that somewhere in the world people are still learning flowing cursive.ReplyDelete
The carriage and feed release on that machine are amazing. Congrats on the new addition. Anything with those geared typebars does it for me!ReplyDelete
These typewriters are among the most attractive, to me, of all the Remington machines. To be sure, they're a bit overdesigned but that adds to the appeal. Nice find- and I like your blog.ReplyDelete
Thanks Will! I use your page a lot as a reference to learn about my machines so it is a huge compliment that you enjoy reading my blog!Delete
