FS: 50s Remington long carriage: FREE

I was given a ~late 50s Remington Office machine, with a long carriage.  It seems undamaged, but it has a fair bit of rust... the typebars won't move.  It was in a damp basement for years.  I thought I'd offer it here before Kijiji... I'm in the KW area, Ontario.

Could you post a photo by any chance? I'm assuming it's a Super-Riter?

I'm not set up to post pics as per the forum rules, however I can say that, yes, it is a Super-Riter #J333160

I took a closer look, and the right platen knob is cracked.  The spool parts are missing.  Otherwise it looks to be in decent shape, save the rust.

You're in Toronto, right?  I'm often out that way, if you'd like to arrange a drop-off.

Mucho appreciated! However, I've already got a few Super-Riters and very little spare room. https://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons3/dizzy.png
 I have driven to Kitchener several times to pick up machines, but these days it would have to be something very exceptional for me to drive anywhere...  Good to know that you're out there rescuing what pops up.
