The Noiseless typewriter was first introduced in the 1920's as a quieter alternative to conventional typewriters. Originally made by an independent company in America, Remington soon bought them out and added the Noiseless to the Remington range. Production continued right through until 1968, with periodic updates to the styling. There is no such thing as a truly silent manual typewriter, but compared to others the Noiseless comes close thanks to its unique plunger action which replaces the typebars fitted to a 'normal' typewriter. The sharp 'thwack' of each typebar hitting the paper is replaced with a muted 'thud'! Typists used to conventional machines tend to find this a little disconcerting at first, but once acclimatised to the different 'feel', it is a very rewarding typewriter to use.
This particular machine dates from near the end of production and was assembled in Remington's Glasgow factory. It appears to have very little use before being stored away for many decades by its previous owner. I have re-commissioned the machine and made some minor adjustments to improve the performance. With so little wear, it would last for a very long time indeed before needing any further attention. If you have a lot of typing to do, you cannot beat a full-size office machine like this one. The steep keyboard slope makes it much less tiring to use than a portable, and as a commercial tool, it was of course designed to be used all day, every day.
Due to the size and weight of this machine, it would be best collected from me here in Luton. However, I am prepared to quote for postage if necessary
