1971 Remington Ten Forty Serial # HY419942 1971 Remington Ten Forty typewriter, Serial # HY419942 Jacob Gilliam's 1971 Remington Ten Forty typewriter. 2018-09-10 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Jacob Gilliam: 1971 Remington Ten Forty Serial # HY419942 Got this from a thrift store, technically. But had I not mentioned that I was looking specifically for typewriters while searching, the old lady behind the desk wouldn't have let me know that she had literally that week put hers in the other branch up north. So I went and got it that Saturday. It has some nice-feeling snap to it!

I am a student, father, and metrologist (gauges, not weather), Dungeon Master and typewriter tinkerer extraordinaire! I've only been at collecting and fixing since August 2018, but I already am a more confident person. I have learned a great deal from many of the wonderful resources available on the Internet, and I've met a lot of awesome people in my travels! Hopefully some folks can say the same about me!
