This was a basket case.
It was originally a cream coloured example, which is rather rare. The unfortunate part is that this one got repainted in the seventies, and they did a terrible job. I had to strip the entire machine, and ultimately chose to repaint the machine red.
It was a machine that was complete save for the H typebar, but also one that was so rusty I had to build a zinc plating system to re-plate many of the smaller parts, like the ends of the typebars. On the whole though, the machine came back to life and the work put into it was ultimately worth it.

Together they have established Venneburg Typewriters, a partnership that to date has seen over 400 typewriters since 2009. Here you will find the machines that are currently still in possession or that have come and gone since December 2017.
