1957 Remington Office-Riter Serial # ER 3221416 1957 Remington Office-Riter typewriter, Serial # ER 3221416 Brad Sarno's 1957 Remington Office-Riter typewriter. 2018-10-22 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Brad Sarno: 1957 Remington Office-Riter Serial # ER 3221416 This Office-Riter appears to be identical to the Quiet-Riter, but it has a wider carriage, red platen knobs, and a metal base that makes it sit up just a bit on the desk.

For some reason, this one has a few issues, occasional skipping, and the return lever sometimes catches in a funny way. The type alignment on this one is not as straight as my pair of Quiet-Riters.

But overall, these are nice machines, good design, kinda cool looking, and type well.

I've spent my life as a mechanical and electronics tinkerer, bikes, cars, lawnmowers, appliances, cameras, audio gear, guitars, amplifiers, and pedal steel guitars. I was trained as a typist for 2 years back in the late 70's on IBM Selectric II's. At home I recall my mother having an Olympia SM3. More recently we got our daughter a typewriter for Christmas, and that somehow sparked my own personal interest in these fine and interesting machines. Now it's a habit that just won't quit. Daily searches on Craigslist, frequent trips to antique stores & malls, garage sales, etc. It's a fun and healthy addiction.
