For missing platen knobs I'm using corks with plastic tops. I have one off a bottle of balsamic syrup that works nicely on the Hermes 3000 from strikethru.That's a nice little machine. My first in 1980 was an underwood that I still have.
I feel sure I'll be able to find you a knob from among my bits and pieces.
What a beautiful machine. It looks in extraordinarily good condition! I can't help thinking that it sat in a time capsule of sorts during all these years, waiting for the right moment when it would be really appreciated. Those closet finds are usually the best! Congratulations!
Great typewriter, and interesting tidbit about the book written in typewriter font.Let's type Caroline Preston a letter! ;)
The least she could have done was use a custom typewriter font from The Classic Typewriter Page!
Nice typewriter! Interesting about the book. I know I at least have matched pair of 30's or early 40's Royal knobs to which you are welcome.Merry Christmas!
Ahh, the old typewriter in the closet surprise! What fun (:
The neat part to me about these really old portables is that you can watch the typebars swing up out of the basket. Those baby Rems you like are the best for that, but this is a sweet Royal. Thanks for sharing! RichardK/TX
I can't think of anything better for Christmas than going back to your childhood home and finding a lovely old typewriter in the bedroom closet. Sadly, for me, it would be an Olivetti Studio 44. Still ... better than none at all!
Hey, Robert! Come on! Studio 44 is a fine machine and don't take my word for it, but Tennessee's! Hi all! Nice typewriter, Richard! Good font, round and clear and the Scrapbook just gave me an idea!Happy brand new year, everybody!!!Max
