Every time I would pass the old Banger store room, this
old timer would ask - "how about me MrT?? Pleeeaasse!?!" I
would tell the old timer - "who would want a nicked up old
Bottom line is the old timer wore me down and my thinking
is it would be worth the time and effort just to get him out of my
way and not have to listen to his whining and crying anymore.
As this old typer had an 'R' stamped next to his serial
number, I knew he was was a re-built of the twentys. The key board was
nice and there were no parts missing. A quick second
new platen, feed rolls and new ribbon along with a good bath and we're
back in business.
Now I'm sure that this 90 year old Remington #10 won't
be everyone's cup of tea but he will fly with the best of them and
you will never find a second #10 that will be a better typer.
I wonder if Austin Powers likes old Bangers???
