The Typewriter Database 1896 Remington 6 Serial # 26872 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Jake Fischer: 1896 Remington 6 Serial # 26872 This was a gift from Bill Wahl of the Mesa Typewriter Exchange. It is by far the oldest machine in my collection. Unfortunately, everything is covered in a thick layer of rust. I have gotten everything to move except the carriage itself, which has a bearing that is fused to the most rear rail. I do not think that I can get her going, but I will not loose hope.

I am a typewriter collector and amateur repairman who became obsessed after typing at a young age on my grandfather's Olivetti Lettera 22, which he soon gave to me. Now I have had over ten typewriters in my collection, flipping the less valuable ones for a low price to fund my obsession.

At one point, I was weary of polish; now I see the wonderful shine that Meguiar's cleaning wax brings to a glossy paint. I still avoid polishing nickle or chrome, for I hear that patina is valuable on old metal. However, I refuse to use the devil's website, also known as Ebay. Just too many deaths by shipping...and unacceptably exuberant prices...
