A Rusty 1930s Royal Typewriter Is Professionally Restored
Nothing beats the tactile sensation of typing on typewriter. This Insider video goes step by step through restoration of a broken down machine
Lucas Dul has been studying and repairing typewriters for nearly a decade. He has repaired typewriters dating from 1880 to 1980, making as few modifications to the original design as possible. Here, he repairs a late 1930s Royal brand portable typewriter made for export to India during the British imperial reign.
The restoration involves taking apart the entire machine for deep cleaning, removing rust with a wire brush, replacing discolored keys, reassembly, and a type test to ensure the machine works perfectly.
