I haven’t gone that route yet, but I would love to refit a Royal 10 with a new platen. The machine is in otherwise perfect condition. I want something better that shrink-tubing.
Certainly do get the platen recovered – especially on a machine from the 20’s/30’s. There is *nothing* so pleasing as typing on a black laquered iron frame writing machine with factory-fresh rubber on it. Always an excellent investment. (:
Great tip. I have a couple of machines that I favorite and would love for them to be “brand new” forever.
Y’know… I was manufactured in 1954 too and am in moderately perfect condition. Maybe I should pay Mr. Short a visit. 🙂
I was born in 1954 too. It’s kind of fun to use a machine the same age as me.
My Silent-Super sure types nice with all new rubber, thanks to JJ Short.
