1930 Remington Noiseless 6 Serial # X171595 1930 Remington Noiseless 6 typewriter, Serial # X171595 Javier Vazquez del Olmo's 1930 Remington Noiseless 6 typewriter. 2017-12-21 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Javier Vazquez del Olmo: 1930 Remington Noiseless 6 Serial # X171595 This is one of the typewriters that has spent more time in the repair queue. After 100 typewriters more, it´s still waiting!

I can´t say much about it because it´s jammed. Something´s wrong with the typebars, apart from one being broken. This is a nagging issue, because these noiseless typewriters have quite a complex typebar arrangement.

Even if it was non-functional, I got it because I found it quite interesting. Four characters per typeslug, the noiseless mechanism and the shining (re)paint make a good package. Now it only needs to be revived, and if Ihaven´t done it before it´s because I fear this one needs HEAVY repairs.

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 only returned home in 2017, almost 20 years later, when he wanted a better typewriter.

A collection that started small grew into something bigger, a nuisace for my family and a great source of satisfaction for me.
