The Typewriter Database 1925 Remington 30 Serial # LX50576 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Justin De Mello: 1925 Remington 30 Serial # LX50576 (Pictures are still in progress)
I believe this Remington Model 30 is not working but I don't really know what it's problems are. It's not rusted or damaged, it's just that I have not tested it in many years so I'm calling it "non working" until I prove otherwise. I've had it for decades and I can't even remember where I got it from. It has a wide carriage of about 19 inches. I have done little or nothing to this machine other than surface clean it and it's begging for attention. I got it in California when I lived there. When I moved to New Mexico, after a few years here, the platen cracked nearly from one end to another. It's dry in NM; I did not think to oil it up some. It was missing one of the original ribbon wheel spools for it's brand and year but I finally found an original for it. I'm determined to get this machine working again ... someday. It is the only one I have that is considered non-working.

I fell in love with typewriters when I was 13. I'm retired now. My first was a Corona #3 which I got free from a neighbor. Decades pass, life happened, and I lost interest. Then a few years back as a retiree I renewed my interest which is a bit of a happy obsession now. However, it's not just typewriters that captivate me; I love all types of old office equipment, too. I have a Dalton adding machine (which I've restored), several different working antique check writers, a Dictaphone, antique steno machine, business card press, postage stamp scale. I have a well equipped antique office that is spilling into all parts of my home. Most items are from the Machine Age: 1880's into the 1930's. Still, typewriters are complex and amazing pieces of machinery that I'm always drawn to.
