This machine is in very poor shape at the moment - I bought it mainly because I was in the mood for a tough project (I don't think I realised quite what I was in for), and also because of the cool 'Australian Built' decal. I believe Remingtons assembled under licence in Australia to avoid import tariffs were as close as this country ever got to having a typewriter industry. Browsing eBay and the like, I've only ever seen that decal on the smaller Remington portables so I thought I'd nab this one.
I can only presume this was given to kids to play with at some point; the case and insides were filled with metallic purple confetti shaped like hearts, along with a revolting used bandaid. Such a fate might explain the broken spacebar, which at some point was taped back together so that a sticky residue remains around the fracture point.
The carriage movement is terribly sluggish right now, but I think that's just due to the truly tremendous quantity of gunk lurking in the bowels of the machine. It will receive a therapeutic and thorough restoration ASAP.
