Another showroom quality typewriter!
This is a very beautiful machine. It is high on my want list. Very, very high.
Beautiful! Platen looks to be in nice shape too (:
It hasn't seen a lot of use, though the platen is quite hard. Probably a good candidate for my brake fluid treatment.
T h a t l o o k s g o r g e o u s !Congrats on that find. Typeface of the Remington wordmark on the front goes brilliantly with the design.If you do the platen on this one, I'll be curious how you take it out. The platen on my otherwise fine 5T is rock-hard, should be recovered or get some other treatment. But haven't dared to tinker with the carriage yet.
It looks like it would be simple—removing one screw and the hex-nut on the left carriage knob, but that didn't work for me. I may leave it as it is because I'm not having any problems with it.
So beautiful! One of the few true Art Deco typewriters.
Along with the Noiseless 8—Remington sure had their style down back then.
Niiiiice! You're one lucky man, Nick!
W O W ! I love these machines too ... I have my Deluxe model 5 listed for sale right now, but I really don't want to part with it. :)
I have found myself returning today, repeatedly to feast my eyes on this machine. Simply stunning!
Nick - I drove about an hour to get my Remington Streamliner too. Oceanside, CA. At the time on eBay, I was tracking prices and it was about $100-$150 for them. This was about 1-1/2 yr ago... I think prices are now $75-100 but still occasionally reach higher.Anyways, I got mine for $70 and it is in great shape, except for the latches on the case but oh well.I love the look of these.I ended up getting a Remington 5 too a couple months later.Enjoy!
The latches on my case aren't much good either. I'll have to look into that…I've just had it out on display ever since so I haven't had to put it in it's case. :)
