1940 Remington Remette Serial # CR231769 1940 Remington Remette typewriter, Serial # CR231769 Steven White's 1940 Remington Remette typewriter. 2018-12-16 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Steven White: 1940 Remington Remette Serial # CR231769 So here's my $34 flea market weekend find.
Remington Rem-ette
S/N CR231769 dated 1940, I believe.
As I mentioned yesterday, it's in great condition. No wear and tear on the body at all. No patina or rust to be found - anywhere at all on the machine at all. The only thing that showed its age, honestly, is in the rubber parts and the case, itself.
I blew the dust out and put some Hoppe's No. 9 Gun Medic in the places I felt it needed (I kinda regret doing so because it was moving fine before) and put a new ribbon on the spoils I had from an extra universal set I had and put some paper in it and went to town on a journal entry. No adjustments or realignments needed. No skips past the user's own fat fingers.
This one seems easier to avoid tangling the type bars up like I do as I type.
This gear driven mechanisms is different feel as well as I've never used a Remington.
As I'm typing I couldn't help notice how closely spaced the letters were and I began to realize I had the pica type on it.
I'm curious about the ^ key as I've never seen this before.
So for now, I'm proud to have it. Look forward to typing on it.
It now has new rubber on the platten and feet. Types like a high-dollar machine.
