    Remington Portable No. 1

    Here it is. Found this at a steal at the Hartville, OH flea market. It's been degassing in the garage since June.
    Serial says NA38541, which puts its manufacture sometime in 1923.

    Still has its original metal ribbons. The platen is hard, but no cracks. It will clean up nice.

    In my experience, most of the filth (cigarette ashes, dog hair, gum, legos, etc.) collects under the paper tray. There are 2 hinge pins that hold it on, very awkward to get out. Removing the paper tray also gives access to the rollers, which I'll want to clean and soften as well.

    A seller on Etsy makes new rubber feet. they are basically grommets with different OD on each side. These are shot. The case is in pretty good shape. Some bird crap and other filth needing cleaned off. No key.

    Next post will be all serviced and working and looking pretty when I give it to my daughter for Christmas.

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle.
