1938 Remington Rand Cadet Serial # CB163451 1938 Remington Rand Cadet typewriter, Serial # CB163451 John Munroe's 1938 Remington Rand Cadet typewriter. 2019-04-04 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of John Munroe: 1938 Remington Rand Cadet Serial # CB163451 Callsign: "Jimmy Olson." Marked "A Rem Rand Product," this Cadet has neither slash nor bracket, apostrophe nor quotation mark. No bell, no margins, no tabs, no backspace. Shift key gives capital letters but number keys all have a plus sign in this position - an early attempt at up-selling? Super thin and compact case makes it highly portable - the same height and width as my Princes 300 , and almost as thin. Fun to use! Pica 10 cpi typeface.

Sphinx of black quartz, judge my vow.

From Toronto Canada. Tokyo-based entrepreneur since 1998 and meditation teacher since 2000. Learned to type in Grade 9 following mind-altering lunches and still experience flashbacks while typing. Mother did shorthand and typed 90 wpm as stenographer, dad pecked out haiku on his old typewriter as long as I remember. Moved to thermal printing, 8-character display CanoWord Pen 24 in 1986 when my typewriter broke, then to FujiXerox, Mac and iPhone. Bought my first typewriter of the new millennium (a Lettera 32) in March 2015. Muscle memory has graduated to neural reboot--every moment at the typewriter brings back fresh memories of type-happy childhood and visions of literary grandeur. Use typewriter for inspiration/rough drafts and computer/iPhone (Scrivener/Evernote) for polishing.
