The Typewriter Database 1936 Remington 5 Serial # V839782 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Tom Beauvais: 1936 Remington 5 Serial # V839782 Raymond, Illinois antique mall purchase. Nice looking machine, good styling, nice easy to read glass keycaps with some red ones that stand out.
Types well although it felt like the strike was set for stencil--seemed to hard. There was too much ribbon on the small spools. SOLD to a friend 16Oct2017.

Changed my collecting priorities to portables except the Olympia SG3 with the cyrillic keyboard and my Underwood No. 5--those beasts are too heavy. Sold my earlier typewriters to a friend. I had too many. I use carbon paper for typefaces when the machines have faint ribbons. I take photos with my Canon Powershot SX50HS (50x optical zoom and macro settings). I find it difficult doing typeface specimens since I use a Corsair K70 RGB gaming keyboard plugged into my 15-in Macbook. I got it solely for the deep key travel. I have fun hunting machines in antique malls in Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana.
