Typewriters Matter and Henry Dreyfus must have thought so too.  Designer Henry Dreyfus filed the patent on his new typewriter design of the Royal Quiet Deluxe in 1945 in which he referred to his new design as “a new, original, and ornamental design for typewriting machine".

 And because typewriters matter to us, we've taken our time to not only refurbish it and make sure it's working as it was made to, but we've added some small touches that make the machine shine even more.

Here is a sampling of what has been done to this machine:

  • Platen has been resurfaced and cleaned
  • Type segment has been cleaned with solvent
  • Mechanics have been cleaned with solvent
  • Type slugs have been cleaned with solvent
  • Adjusted ring & cylinder for better type impression
  • NEW rubber feet have been installed
  • Machine has been properly lubricated
  • Magic Margin has been cleaned and thoroughly lubricated and tested
  • Bell has been cleaned and lubricated (and tested)
  • Outer shell has been removed from machine and cleaned
  • Shift has been adjusted
  • Feed rollers have been removed and cleaned
  • Type alignment has been checked
  • Red/Black Ribbon Selector has been tested
  • CAPS Lock has been tested
  • Backspace and tabulator have been tested
  • Line spacing has been tested
  • Linelock has been tested
  • Variable linespace has been tested
  • Ribbon reverse has been tested
  • A new ribbon has been installed
  • Carrying case has been cleaned and hinges lubricated

I love the two tone  color of this Royal QDL that was manufactured right after WW2.  It's been loved for generations by writers, students, and collectors.

Comes thoroughly tested with a fresh ribbon installed along with the original case.
