1948 Remington Deluxe Model 5 Serial # B1616734 1948 Remington Deluxe Model 5 typewriter, Serial # B1616734 Michael Hoehne's 1948 Remington Deluxe Model 5 typewriter. 2024-02-08 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Michael Hoehne: 1948 Remington Deluxe Model 5 Serial # B1616734 odd ribbon spool, small diameter fitting large diameter spindle. The C slug has been loosely resoldered and is way out of alignment. Thats an incentive for me to learn that skill, with nothing to lose. The keys have cleaned up nicely but the paint is still chipped and the decals are worn off so I can't be sure of the model. I think it's the Deluxe Model 5 because of theTouch Control.

While I find all of mankind's inventions interesting, I am most enchanted by the human-scale arts and devices, the ones that can be created (and repaired) in a home workshop or studio; the ones that can be understood by looking at them; the ones that do something useful or stir admiration. Typewriters work for me.
