Typewriter TECHS WHERE QUALITY RESTORATION IS OUR STANDARD

The following are full size machines or specialty machines which were excellent functioning machines and signified changes in the market. The Royal #5 or Flatbed Royal was a low profile machine that began production around 1911 with a tabulator key, manual tab stops and a ribbon selector. When Royal came out with the #10, they shifted back to a traditional size machine and it paid off for them. The Royal #10 also nicknamed "Glass Sides" was first introduced in 1914 and became another giant in the typewriter industry. Glass Sides originally had 2 bevelled glass panels per side, which was later changed to one per side. Royal #10 was marketed as the sturdiest, strongest, most reliable workhorse of a typewriter around. It included a thick layer of felt on the inside for noise reduction. In 1938, Royal introduced the KMM or Magic Margin which also included touch control and represented Royal's first major break in design since 1905.

Other notable full size typewriters that we feature is the Underwood Noiseless which became the leader in the industry prior to WW11. Both Remington and Underwood built Noiseless machines but Underwood filed for the patents and alterations for the Noiseless which featured a mechanism that attempted to muffle the sound of the keys hitting the platen.

The Oliver typewriter was one of the most unique designs in typewriter history. It features two inverted u-shaped type bars that swing down from two towers. This only allows the typist to see a little over a inch of text at one time. It forced the typist into a tunnel vision concentration on what they were typing.

pixel_transparant


The U-shaped type bars strike down from two sides.
The Oliver first appeared in the late 1800's. Invented by the Canadian Rev. Thomas Oliver, the machine would live to be one of the most lasting alternatives of the regular front stroke typewriter. Production in the USA ended in 1928. The British branch would continue production of the down stroke until after World War II.
The Oliver 9 was produced between 1915 to 1928, while at the same time an identical Oliver 4 was produced with foreign keyboards for the export market. The Olive-green color is typical for the Oliver typewriter, although the earliest models (and some later export models) were produced with a nickel-plated frame

The Oliver has an extremely high striking power. This made it perfect as a stencil maker and to use on multiple forms. By 1920 other manufacturers had advanced and improved their designs. The Oliver design proved limited and that limited the number of machines sold. Most businesses kept the Olivier's as a "specialty"work typewriter.
The Oliver was the first typewriter successfully sold for home use. Oliver encourage buyers to become dealers in their small towns and to sell directly to neighbors. While this door to door sales met with limited success, the credit burden eventually undermined the company's financial stability. The onset of WWI and the recession hit the Oliver company at a time they were unable to absorb it. The company closed its doors in 1928. The Oliver line had a very unusual design, and layout, making it very user unfriendly for most typists. In addition several feature have poor accessibility for the user, and although Oliver touted the double arm type bars as stronger, the thin gage metal actually made them weak and type alignment an issue. Most were either scraped for metal during WWII or relegated to storage



This particular gem was produced in the 1915 . It has been completely serviced to include:
First and foremost we rate the typewriter before any service is done. This unit came to us in very good to excellent condition.
Second, the typewriter is stripped down by one of our techs. Then each piece is cleaned by hand. Damaged or worn parts are replaced with new, or identical parts from other donor machines

Royal was one of the legacy US typewriter manufacturers. They introduced their first typewriter, the Royal #1, in 1906. They produced typewriters up thru 1970, with the only interruption in production from WWII. During WWII they manufactured everything from guns to aircraft parts. they resumed typewriter production in 1945. By 1957 Royal had announced they had produced their 10 millionth typewriter. In the 1960's the US government filed suit against Royal, claiming they were a monopoly. The suit was later reversed. In the late 1980's Royal was later absorbed by Olivetti

The Royal 10 was introduced in 1914. The 10 had two production runs, one had two glass panels, the other had 4 glass panels It is not clear at what point or why exactly that change was made. However, the machine presented here has a serial number that fits a production date in 1917. The Royal 10 was marketed as being the sturdiest and strongest typewriter around. These machines were huge investments, and the typewriter companies wanted to stress the durability of their machines. To demonstrate this point, the Royal company even organized stunts, where it threw 200 typewriters (in crates with parachutes) from airplanes, to show that they would even survive a fall. The Royal typewriters were so popular that as early as October of 1926 they announced the production of their 1 millionth typewriter. They were so popular other manufactures copied Royal designs, which later ended up with Royal winning several copywriter lawsuits

Dr. Samuel Gridley Howe, the first director of Perkins, believed it wasn't enough for people who are blind to be read to by others. He devoted his life's work to making sure that blind and visually impaired people throughout the world could read and enjoy books.
As he embarked upon his challenge as director of the first school for the blind in the United States, Howe took a three-week tour to see how European countries taught people who were blind. He realized there was a critical shortage of embossed books, due to the high cost of producing them. Howe bought four of these specialized books for Perkins, but the large raised letters made the books as bulky as they were expensive. Howe began to dream of establishing a separate printing department on the Perkins campus, an enterprise that would be later become Howe Press.
By 1835, Howe opened the Perkins Printing Department, providing books to his students and others who were visually impaired. He created the Boston Line Type, his own more narrow, slender typeface. Although this system was easier for people with sight to read and was less costly and cumbersome to produce, users still had difficulty writing. The school continued to use this system for 50 years until the creation of the Perkins Brailler® at Perkins revolutionized communication for the blind.
In the 1930's the director at the time, Dr. Gabriel Farrell, asked David Abraham, a woodworking teacher at Perkins to create a machine that would make braille more accessible for the blind. Abraham, who had experience working with machines at his father's factory in England, worked for years before coming up with the prototype. First produced in 1951, the Perkins Brailler® is a durable, inexpensive alternative to conventional brailling machines. Today, the Perkins Brailler® is the standard model worldwide and Perkins Products/Howe Press has manufactured more than 300,000 machines.


Mr. Abraham and Dr. Waterhouse had created a list of specifications that would make the Perkins Brailler the best machine available. Mr. Abraham managed to incorporate all of these features, plus a few more, into his design.
The Perkins Brailler is easy to use. The touch is so light that very young people and those with little strength can use it without strain. The machine is tough and hard to break, and much quieter than other braillers available at the time. Paper can be quickly and easily inserted, and the spacing mechanisms are swift and simple to operate. When the operator reaches the bottom of the page, the mechanism prevents the paper from falling out. It is so accurate in its spacing that previously embossed paper can be reinserted and a single dot can be added to a specific cell, without damaging any of the existing work. The brailler has no projecting carriages or parts because the embossing head is inside the case and moves across the paper. These features made the Perkins Brailler reliable and easy to use, and it remains unsurpassed to this day.

The Underwood #5 is the most successful typewriter design in history. Appearing shortly before 1900, the Underwood established the stereotype of a typewriter until the introduction of the IBM Selectric in 1961. When the Underwood was first introduced, it was only one of hundreds of competing and extremely varied typewriter designs. But by 1920, almost every typewriter imitated the Underwood.
The Underwood typewriter is the creation of German-American inventor Franz X. Wagner. The name "Underwood" comes from John T. Underwood, an entrepreneur who bought the company early in its history. (The Underwood family was already a successful manufacturer of ribbons and carbon paper.
Underwood Models 3, 4, and 5 were made from late 1900 until late 1931 or early 1932. The No. 3 is a wide-carriage machine, the No. 4 types 76 characters, and the No. 5 types 84 characters. The No. 5 was the quintessential Underwood. Millions of these machines were used by secretaries, journalists, government officials, and writers throughout the first half of the twentieth century. Later Underwood's were superficially modernized, but retained the same basic mechanism. The name "No. 5" was even given to some of these later typewriters, in honor of the model that made the company's fortune. The company was eventually bought by Olivetti, and in the early 1960s, the name "Underwood" finally disappeared from the typewriter

The Royal HH was a huge gamble for the Royal Corporation. At a time when manufactures started to move production overseas to lower the labor cost Royal decided not to. Instead, they decide to raise prices and produce a high quality US manufactured product. The HH failed to attach buyers that Royal hoped it would. Although well designed and a durable machine, the HH could not compete with the steam of inexpensive imports coming into the market

The Remington company was first contract to make typewriters for Sholes and Glidden(the first patent holder for a Type-Writer). At the time they were the premier maker of both firearms and sewing machines. Later Remington sold the typewriter branch to Standard Typewriters, who changed their name to Remington. Remington when on to become the largest manufacturer of typewriters, making units for many other manufacturers and stores under their respective names.

The Model 11 Special was a development of the earlier Remington full size typewriters. They includes additional features, such as enclosed sides for noise reduction, a larger paper table, and a tabulator. Remington had many innovative design enhancements on their typewriters not seen on others. Remington always strives to be different from other manufacturers and was continually advancing and updating their designs. This would have been the first year of the "quiet" Model 11


These machines are true monuments to American design and style. They epitomized an era long past
