Monica S, made in England

Nice machine, print quality excellent, the machine is nice to use. The touch is good, but not a patch on an SM3 or SM4. Feel and quality of the key caps and platen knobs is light and less dense than the Olympias of old.

Nice clamshell case

See picture of ingenious sickle shaped locking device for removing body of typewriter from shell.

Typewriter collector, previous sewing machine collector.

Originally from the Garden of England, Kent. I have lived in Sheffield for over fifteen years.

As a young child, I always enjoyed taking things apart and seeing how they functioned.

I have been collecting a range of vintage typewriters for over two years.

Previously, I was interested in restoring sewing machines, then I acquired my mothers Olivetti Dora and looked under the hood and typed, I was hooked on typewriters and how they worked.

I learn something every day from passionate bloggers and typewriter enthusiasts.

Fan of Joe Van Cleave's typewriter video series.
