1916 Royal 5 Serial # 241616-5 1916 Royal 5 typewriter, Serial # 241616-5 Kenneth Kruschka's 1916 Royal 5 typewriter. 2017-12-16 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Kenneth Kruschka: 1916 Royal 5 Serial # 241616-5 Just getting her working was really something. There was a bind in the ribbon drive gear assembly under the typewriter; figured it out and fixed the gear's meshing properly again. This is a fun feeling machine. I still gotta come up with some better feet, that's not a big deal though.

After finding a Smith-Corona Coronet 12 at a curb-side (in Winter while walking the dog) I carried it home; after it thawed out and started coming back to life I was hooked. My interest in this hobby lead to taking two parts typewriters to create one good unit. This typewriter aliment is (pretty much) in-curable!
