1956 Royal Aristocrat Serial # RB-3284819 1956 Royal Aristocrat typewriter, Serial # RB-3284819 Michael Hoehne's 1956 Royal Aristocrat typewriter. 2015-06-27 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Michael Hoehne: 1956 Royal Aristocrat Serial # RB-3284819 A typically nice mid-'50s Royal with a few small problems, now seemingly fixed: the left-side Magic Margin had lost its magic (fixed with graphite on the rails and a slight reshaping of the control lever) and a non-returning return lever (fixed by removing the carriage end cap and maybe it'll keep working when I replace it). Tweed-look fibreglas case and a good owner's manual.

The usual Royal white coating on plastic parts (keys, knobs) comes off easily by scraping (rubbing, really) with a sharp-edged wooden tool if you don't want to use your fingernail. Then I'll wax them.

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.
