1960s Remington Travel-Riter
Up for sale is a Remington Travel-Riter which was made in Holland sometime in the 1960s. This typewriter is in great shape overall, and is fully functional down to the bell. Cosmetically, it has some small areas of missing paint, but is largely in great shape. Mechanically, this typewriter is flawless. The feed roller has been re-covered with fresh rubber, so this machine shouldn't have any trouble feeding paper for many years to come. The carrying case is also in very impressive condition, with few signs of wear/aging.
This typewriter is a decent machine to write on, however it is best for typists who prefer a heavy touch. The touch required on this machine to get this machine to consistently print is quite heavier than the average manual typewriter, so this wouldn't be the best first manual typewriter if you're not used to using these machines. That being said, if you want to give your fingers a workout or simply have a heavier touch when typing, then this typewriter should fit you well. It can be used heavily and reliably for as long as you're willing to write on it for a certain amount of time. This typewriter does not use universal ribbons, since the ribbon needs to be fed directly into the built-in spools of the machine. I tried installing a universal ribbon, however there was not enough vertical clearance with the typebasket cover in place to allow the ribbon to feed as it should.

If you're looking for a nice machine with a heavy touch that can be used heavily and reliably, then this is a great option.
