The Typewriter Database 197X Facit 1620 Serial # 0071132 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Javier Vazquez del Olmo: 197X Facit 1620 Serial # 0071132 I´m quite happy with this typewriter. I didn´t expect too much, but it turned out to be quite decent. Everything seems to be in place and works just fine.


The only problem I have is finding a good spot for it, the wide carriage is giving me nightmares! Oh, and the horrid plastic cover. Hideous but effective, though.

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.
