? ROYAL MODEL B TYPEWRITER TUTORIAL: https://youtu.be/3t1rhMzetWg

We CLEAN, SERVICE, REPAIR, & TEST all our typewriters. All our typewriters come with a new ribbon installed.

REMEMBER, YOU ARE PURCHASING A VINTAGE ITEM! This typewriter is 82 years old!

I recommend using a dust cover when not in use.

The dimensions for this typewriter are:

  • 13″ wide
  • 11″ deep
  • 5″ tall


▪️STUNNING! A portable 1939 Royal Model B in excellent condition. Original glass keys, smooth keystroke, and sleek finish. A few minor scratches at the space bar but otherwise looks snazzy!

▪️The Model B has black matte accent bands around the computer adding a lovely dimension to the machine.

▪️The bell is quite faint and I didn’t hear it when typing but hear it when using the carriage release levers. Margin release works. Backspace works. A couple of the tabs settings are a bit stiff.

▪️A new black/red ribbon is installed. It is serviced, cleaned, and tested and is ready to go as soon as it arrives! I can see this as your coffee-shop typewriter or something in a smaller space.

▪️The case is sturdy but there are spots where the outside fabric layer is loose.

▪️Suitable for medium-to-heavy use.

▪️We’ve serviced, cleaned, and tested the typewriter and it is in wonderful condition. Please watch all the video links we provide in this description. (Please watch all our video links below to understand our level of service)

▪️Especially watch the typing DEMO video and the typewriter TUTORIAL video.
