I had to spent quite a while with this one until it more or less worked. This typewriter needed a cleanup, and apart from some minos adjustments I could make I haven´t been able to make the return key work. I have to jump to the next line manually, by rolling and pushing the platen.

But anyway, I still like it. As I said, electric typebar typewriters have something (mostly the touch), and I´m still trying to make this one work at 100%, even if it´s not the best machine on the world (and part of the universe).

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.
