196X Sperry Rand (Remington) Streamliner Serial # HX250403 196X Sperry Rand (Remington) Streamliner typewriter, Serial # HX250403 Tom Beauvais's 196X Sperry Rand (Remington) Streamliner typewriter. 2017-06-20 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Tom Beauvais: 196X Sperry Rand (Remington) Streamliner Serial # HX250403 Michigan antique mall purchase. Don't like plastic as a rule but this was an attractive looking machine. Ribbon was too weak so used carbon paper for typeface specimen. Has a light touch and a snappy sound. Lifting the ribbon spool cover off is tricky--the one end prong was hard to detach. The end caps seem awkward in trying to advance the platen. Machine made in Holland. I no longer own this machine.

Changed my collecting priorities to portables except the Olympia SG3 with the cyrillic keyboard and my Underwood No. 5--those beasts are too heavy. Sold my earlier typewriters to a friend. I had too many. I use carbon paper for typefaces when the machines have faint ribbons. I take photos with my Canon Powershot SX50HS (50x optical zoom and macro settings). I find it difficult doing typeface specimens since I use a Corsair K70 RGB gaming keyboard plugged into my 15-in Macbook. I got it solely for the deep key travel. I have fun hunting machines in antique malls in Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana.
