Remington Quiet-Riter....In-Coming...

Remington Quiet-Riter....In-Coming...from the mid 1950's or so.

Decent win from SGW.  Should have it in -hand in about a week.  All in, it set me back about $ 62 USD including S/H fees.

The case is what drew my attention to the auction.

I have always felt somewhat "meh" about the styling of these machines.  Curious to get one in my hands and give it a try-out.

More photos after a spa-day on my work bench.

Re: Remington Quiet-Riter....In-Coming...

After some standard cleaning and tweaking I think you will be pleasantly surprised.  I bought one on a lark for $16 in a thrift shop and it did need some repair of the margin setting but works great now.  Visually it shows it's age but it types very well.  The case has an issue...it is tedious to put back in the case to secure it.  You may end up cursing a bit.

I think they're excellent machines, even though its design is a softened version of the spectacular All New Portable that preceded it. Actually, the design of the entire range '50s Remington Riter models - much like Olympia models - are very complimentary, but I really need to take a photo of the Travel-Riter with Letter/Quiet/Super Riters to fully prove my point.

EDIT: I forgot that I had taken such a photo many years ago and just found it now...

Fed Exp truck came on a Sunday.

SGW did an excellent job in packing and protecting the machine and case.

Tomorrow, if weather cooperates, it will be on my work bench.
