The Typewriter Database 1968 Facit TP2 Serial # Р640405 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Sergei Viktorovich: 1968 Facit TP2 Serial # Р640405 Very nice sweden typewriter in exellent condition.

Initially, the carriage did not respond to the keyboard and the carriage return lever, because a paper clip fell into the stepper mechanism. The carriage woke up after the removal of the clip.

It wasn't dust inside the machine. The mechanism is lubricated. The machine is not used for about 20 years.

The typewriter was equipped with a fabric cover, a brush, a felt mat, user manual, six spools, the well-preserved sweden tapes in nice boxes, correction strips, a pack of carbon paper and the some old paper.

The carriage is arranged very interesting - instead of the classic rails in it is applied the pipe, inside of which the bar on the circle bearings moves. This provides a silent and easy movement of the carriage.

Also there are two (!) tabulating systems: a tab with a set of raters and a fixed tab, called "mechanical memory". This mechanism puts a few stops in fixed positions.

I watched this machine for six months and eventually bought it for about $ 20.

Hi!
I'm Sergei, I was made in Russia)))))))
I wouldn't call myself a hunter - I just love typewriters, use them and collect some of them.
Many of it comes and goes out, solds to someone else, and others who "gets" me, remains)
I can't tell where I've developed a passion for typewriters. It seems that I was born with it. At least for as long as I can remember, I have always loved it. The first machine I bought in 2008. It was our, Soviet "Lyubava", a copy of "Erika". Before it, I've seen typeriters only on pictures)
