The Remington 5T (5 Views) M60 Home     Remington Gallery

This is a front view of the 5T showing the red TAB key at the right and the Remington Portable Model 5T identification in gold lettering on the indexed paper table. There is a paper guide on the left end of the paper tray. There are two small platen rollers, and a line feed lever on the left. There are two pressure clips to hold down paper, a paper guide, two shift keys, and on the left at the end of the second row of keys a CAPS Lock key. A NUM Lock key is at the right end of the top row of keys.

Produced from 1932 well into 1939, the model 5 and the 5T were very simulator. The latter had a bright red tab key, though, which is a handy feature. The Remington portables of the 30s were of necessity smaller than their predecessors due to cost-cutting pressures of the Depression years. 5T cost the same as the Model 5 at $65.00.

This left front quarter view shows that there is a paper guide on the left end of the paper tray. There are two small platen rollers, and a line feed lever on the left. A ribbon reverse knob is found on each side below the platen, as well as paper release levers. in this right front quarter view we see that there are two pressure clips to hold paper against the platen and a platen release lever. The bright ringed keys with their black background and white lettering look great with the glossy black of the body. The 5T is a lovely little machine.
This is an overhead view of the 5T showing the fan of typebars, platen, ribbon spools and advance mechanism, and some of the bits making up the tab mechanism.
