The Typewriter Database 196X Remington Junior Serial # MX60 2562 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Javier Vazquez del Olmo: 196X Remington Junior Serial # MX60 2562 I have to say this typewriter is a sharp contrast. The nice touch is the total opposite of the poor overall quality.

Being a Remington one could expect stability, reliability... "remingtonability" in general, but this one is not intended for heavy work. Maybe with some adjustments I could get a more regular writing, but there´s something that needs immediate solution: the ribbon. It´s far worse than the dandruff ribbons, it´s something like what you´d find in an electronic typewriter (a one-use ribbon) only it´s been used more than once. It´s totally destroyed, and what puzzles me is that the ribbon spools seems to be designed to use only that kind of weird ribbon instead of a nylon one. I´ll try to use a normal one and see what happens...

The other trouble is the identification. The serial number does not match with anything, so I don´t have a date.

And just to finish in a good mood, it has an unspeakable keyboard layout: AZERTY with the numbers in the caps position. Mistakes guaranteed. Loads of ´em.

The first typewriter I saw was my grandpa´s Olivetti Linea 98 at the office. It was just a curio for me. Then I was given a Nakajima, which I didn´t use and my grandfather took it from me because it was easier to handle than the bulky Linea 98.

Now I own that typewriter, and I started a little collection in Valladolid, Spain. The Nakajima, which is "my" typewriter is the only one which is NOT in my collection. How ironic...

Things then got... complex. I moved from Valladolid to my village, and suddenly found myself with a lot of room available at home, so the small collection is turning into something bigger, a nuisace for my family and a great source of satisfaction for me.
