1950 Remington Super-Riter Serial # J1888239 1950 Remington Super-Riter typewriter, Serial # J1888239 David Vandergucht's 1950 Remington Super-Riter typewriter. 2024-04-08 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of David Vandergucht: 1950 Remington Super-Riter Serial # J1888239 This machine types real nicely. Its only major defect is that the bell doesn't ring. A metal piece on the ringer is broken. The ribbons use the usual Remington special spools (or could use the special ribbon top). The KMC system is pretty cool. To set the margins, you move the carriage to one side, then press and hold KMC. That grabs the margin stop, and moving the carriage moves the stop. Then, release KMC and that's where the margin stop will be. It works the same on left and right margins.
