What Makes Mr and Mrs Vintage Typewriters different?

fully dismantled typewriter


The Picture above says it all. 

What we do in Mr and Mrs Vintage Typewriters is beyond cleaning these old machine and selling them back for a higher price. 

Each Typewriter at our store is nearly fully dismantled as the picture above displays and each one of these parts is individually cleaned to nearly its original condition and made ready to be put again inside the machine to make it perform as if it is re manufactured back in the days. 

Parts of the typewriter should be rust and grease free to operate in a proper way and they should be re fitted inside the typewriter in the right way so the full mechanism is operating as it should. 

Unfortunately, you can find a lot of "serviced" or "restored" typewriters on eBay, Etsy and even on private websites that resell typewriters but these are only "nearly" cleaned typewriters from dust and re-displayed in better pictures to impress the potential buyers with some technical jargons. 

At our shop, we welcomed many customers asking for help on typewriters that they paid a lot of money for and ended up getting filthy machines from the inside or a typewriter that was heavily oiled ( Which is very wrong and many still do it ) and these typewriters failed them after a couple of days or weeks as they are not ready for heavy typing or the oil reached places inside the typewriter & blocked its operation. 

 At our shop, your typewriter will be properly & genuinely adjusted and reconditioned for you to get the best results from your typewriter. We will align your Lower case and upper case, we will clean your type heads, we will revive your platen and change your rubber rollers underneath when needed, we will change the frame washers, we will replace worn springs, we will add missing screws, we will change the carriage return belt and adjust its tension, and we will check a lot of points on the typewriter to make sure you get what you paid for. 

Our integrity and transparency is a key to our success and we wont rest until you are delighted with your new typewriter and making sure that when anyone asks you where did you get this typewriter from, you will answer, with no hesitance, Mr and Mrs Vintage Typewriters.

Fascinating to see you both work on repairing and restoring the specialist Corona typewriter on The Repair Shop. It’s so encouraging to know that such heritage items can be restored.
