The Typewriter Database 1981 Remington (Brother) Performer Serial # H1599679 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Brad Sarno: 1981 Remington (Brother) Performer Serial # H1599679 Sperry Rand - Remington Performer

This Japanese, Brother-made typewriter was marketed and sold under the Sperry-Rand Remington brand. But it's a late model Brother from 1981. This thing was a cheap score at a local antique mall. No case unfortunately, but the condition is excellent, needed no restoration, just some dusting. These really are fine little typers. Brother made a quality machine that has a nice typing feel and a very precision type alignment. The typeface is small-ish, somewhere between 10 and 12 pitch it seems.

I've spent my life as a mechanical and electronics tinkerer, bikes, cars, lawnmowers, appliances, cameras, audio gear, guitars, amplifiers, and pedal steel guitars. I was trained as a typist for 2 years back in the late 70's on IBM Selectric II's. At home I recall my mother having an Olympia SM3. More recently we got our daughter a typewriter for Christmas, and that somehow sparked my own personal interest in these fine and interesting machines. Now it's a habit that just won't quit. Daily searches on Craigslist, frequent trips to antique stores & malls, garage sales, etc. It's a fun and healthy addiction.
