The Typewriter Database 195X Hispano-Olivetti Studio 44 Serial # 829745 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Javier Vazquez del Olmo: 195X Hispano-Olivetti Studio 44 Serial # 829745 A bonus which comes along with the resurrected Continental Standard.

I got this typewriter for free from Pascual, because he insisted he didn´t need it as a parts machine, and most probably I´d need it first. I promise I tried to disuade him, but I failed miserably.

And now I have this later Studio 44. Spanish serial numbers are a nightmare, so I can´t gie an exact date for this specimen, but it seems to belong to the last runs of the model. There are several differences with the other one I have, the most notable being the return lever.

The bad part is that this typewriter is extremely aht of ordah (as my English). Someone has given it a good whack, and in addition there´s no main spring. But even if I chucked a new one into it, it wouldn´t work either. So many things are damaged / missing / done for.

So since now I´ve managed to get more storage space, I´m happy to keep it, surrounded by a good pile of cousins.

The first typewriter I saw was my grandpa´s Olivetti Linea 98 at the office. It was just a curio for me. Then I was given a Nakajima, which I didn´t use and my grandfather took it from me because it was easier to handle than the bulky Linea 98.

Now I own that typewriter, and I started a little collection in Valladolid, Spain. The Nakajima, which is "my" typewriter is the only one which is NOT in my collection. How ironic...

Things then got... complex. I moved from Valladolid to my village, and suddenly found myself with a lot of room available at home, so the small collection is turning into something bigger, a nuisace for my family and a great source of satisfaction for me.
