WTB: Remington Feet & Draw Band

Greetings All
Recently picked up a 1961-ish Canadian built Remington standard typewriter, S/N-CJ618809

The unit is missing its draw band and the two rear feet.

Would anyone happen to have any of these parts available. Thanks in advance,

We humans go through many computers in our lives, but in their lives, typewriters go through many of us.
In that way, they’re like violins, like ancestral swords. So I use mine with honor and treat them with respect.
I try to leave them in better condition than I met them. I am not their first user, nor will I be their last.

Re: WTB: Remington Feet & Draw Band

Hi Sky,

I got a Remington back on the road for a friend and used these "Everbilt" rubber pads that are 1.5" in diameter.  Here in the States, I can get them at our big-box store, Home Depot.  They also have a smaller size at 7/8" in diameter for smaller machines.

The metal retainer cups were missing on his machine, so I use a bit over-sized zinc-plated metal fender-washer between the rubber mounts and the machine frame.  I looked for metal "cup washers" but had no luck so went with the fender-washers. 

Good sturdy rubber product and price for 4 is great.
