More Cool Customer Repairs.


I've enjoyed typing on this 1932 Royal Signet.


This 1917 Royal 10 cleaned up better than I hoped.




This is the first Mercedes Prima I've repaired.

This Remington 12 Paragon is in awesome condition.




A Corona No. 3 with all the fixings.

Guest at the Press Hotel will love this machine.

Guest will be all over this one too.


This one is for the office to use.
30 seconds after putting this machine down, guest started typing on it.
These machines are scattered across the lobby in the Press Hotel.




More neat dealer stickers.
