6 thoughts on “They rubbered me the right way!

  1. 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.


  2. 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. (:


  3. Great tip. I have a couple of machines that I favorite and would love for them to be “brand new” forever.


  4. Y’know… I was manufactured in 1954 too and am in moderately perfect condition. Maybe I should pay Mr. Short a visit. 🙂
