1940 Remington Deluxe Model 5 Serial # CB57925 1940 Remington Deluxe Model 5 typewriter, Serial # CB57925 Daniel Burgoyne's 1940 Remington Deluxe Model 5 typewriter. 2022-04-04 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Daniel Burgoyne: 1940 Remington Deluxe Model 5 Serial # CB57925 Bought second hand by my father in Longueuil, Québec, sometime in the 1960's for his own personal and business use. This machine remained in my family since then. It is the first typewriter I typed on, as a teenager.

Works perfectly and the case is in great condition even if it is a 82 year-old typewriter.

Made in Canada, only model with a French Canadian keyboard on the TWDB. However, this is the only typewriter, in my collection, where you need to add the accent after the letter is typed. For all my other machines, one presses the dead key first, then the letter. I added photos of this process. Note the offset type slug for the dead key.

It types easily, thanks to a responsive, snappy touch. Pica 10 cpi typeface. The Deluxe Model 5 has a "Self Starter" tabulating key that moves the carriage by 5 positions with each key stroke from any starting position. The selector button front and center of the shell is the touch control.

Good paint condition except on the front corners of the shell. I look forward to cleaning and possibly getting new rubber on the platen and feet.

Bonjour! I am from the region of Montreal, Quebec and moved to Ottawa, Ontario in 1992.

Amateur watchmaker and machinist, I love anything mechanical, hydraulic or electric. I have restored American and Canadian clocks and small lathes, milling machines and a jig bore.

Most of my typewriters have Canadian-French Qwerty keyboards, with some exception for rare finds.
