For typewriter collectors this word is terrifying.
Model 8 is the most awful typewriter of all possible.
Many older masters say that it never worked after exit from the plant. Anyway, this machine has never met in working condition. And few managed to make it work - It is made is so crooked that after disassembling many items already fall into place.
People call it "tin can")))) This nickname clearly reflects all its essence.
it came to me by accident. And I can't wait to get rid of it.

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)
