1949 Royal KMG

Serial #3866460

Found this in the family's attic. It was very dusty and hazed over. But it cleaned up nicely. Sometimes I think that the dusty, dirty coating on old typewriters actually serves as a protective layer. Once I clean it with Awesome spray cleaner, the original paint comes back to life. The chrome needed a dremel tool with a brass wire wheel to clean back down to the chrome. Overall this one types well. It is missing the link to the fractions key, so that one doesn't work. 12-pitch elite typeface.

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.
