Royal KHM before cleaning and repair

This was a catch, clean and release. I found it in the neighborhood junk store in a very dirty state and not moving due to dirt, congealed grease and a detached drawband. The owner of shop let me take it home just to clean it and see if I could get it working.

Cleaned, lubricated and drawband re-attached, it is a handsome machine with a surprisingly sprightly touch - a memorable friskiness. After a weekend of working on it, I brought it back to the junk shop in fine working order.

I felt a little pang at letting it go, but it should now be able to find a good home in its current working state.

I'm a novice collector with a very small collection of mostly nonfunctional typewriters. I enjoy tinkering and repairs, so I am slowly but surely putting these typewriters back into service.
