Typewriters some of my small herd of typing beasties This was stinky and grubby when I bought it. Scrubbed up nicely. Little champion with wonky alignment. Smells great. Types great. Looks great. Haven’t tried tasting it yet. A fighter. Things keep on happening to this machine but it’s still typing. Share this:TwitterFacebookPinterestLike this:Like Loading...

Those are beautiful, especially the Monarch. I am filled with typewriter envy!
Ah, thank you! I am always envious of everyone else’s machines!
Before tasting the Remington make sure it sounds great.

Thank you, dear friend 🙂
I just got a very nice Lettera 32, that is in mint shape, however, the bell does not seem to work, any clues? Can it be shut off or how I might fix it? Many thanks
Hi, sometimes bell issues can be fairly easily resolved, but there are a number of possible reasons why the bell might not be working. Check the position of your margin stops : does the bell fail to ring in various different positions. Have a close look at how the bell trip mechanism works on your machine, and see if anything looks bent or out of shape that might be preventing the bell from working. Often all it takes is a little gentle bending or reforming by hand of the clanger inside the bell to get it to the right position again. If your machine is in really good shape and not previously used much it should not be a serious issue to fix. The main thing is to look carefully and methodically at how the mechanisms function in the typewriter and take your time over it.
