The Typewriter Database 1966 Triumph Gabriele 10 Serial # 3786437 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Brian Brumfield: 1966 Triumph Gabriele 10 Serial # 3786437 QWERTZ/German keyboard. It is a good typer, and cleaned up nicely.

While it's a little schizophrenic - not sure if it's a heavy portable or a light desktop machine, while stuck in that void, it still types surprisingly well for what it is. Maybe this falls into the "luggable" class like some of the contemporary SCM machines (which are lined with invisible lead plates).

It's big for a portable, but they used a lot of stamped steel to keep the weight down. Normally this would really detract from the overall fit-and-finish, and heft/feel of the machine (as you find with 1970's era Japanese typers), but the Gabriele 10 is surprisingly solid(ish), has a decent feel, and types pretty fast. I like it.

I only bought it originally because it is the cousin/companion to my Adler U39.

Purchased from Mark Petersen.

I love machines, machining, creating things from nothing. Typewriters have struck a romantic chord in me, thanks to my oldest son, and I am working with him and the rest of our family to acquire, restore, repair many machines.
Our collection grows in fits and spurts - as the seasons change. We make a lot of acquisitions at estate sales, yard and garage sales, thrift stores, online, and through personal connections.
The machines that we don't want to keep in our own collection, we are selling through various outlets - Etsy, Square Market, and eventually on eBay - and unlike some sellers, we KNOW how to pack a machine for shipment! :-)
Brumfield & Sons Typewriters, at your service.
