    I just found a parkerized-finish Remington Rand
    (no idea how old), among some rust-welded junk in
    an old house.

    I really want to get it back in proper working condition.
    If you know of anyone who really knows how to fix it up,
    preferably near the Quezon City area, please post here ASAP.
    AFAICT, there are no parts missing (maybe a few spring hook-
    bars), but half the keys are stuck, and there's probably a
    dead body wedged in there somewhere.


    Thanks,
    :)

    Heheh...
    I'll try looking for a repair shop sa Raon.
    If anyone knows of a joint closer to QC, I'm all ears.

    Nice find :thumbsup: Now all you have to do is get a matching Remington Rand 1911. :)

    There's a Singer 1911 right? Would also match with an antique Singer sewing machine. :supergrin:

    Match it with an Underwood Carbine which is quite rare. ;)
