The Typewriter Database 197X Silver Reed 2600CR Serial # 51099085 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Javier Vazquez del Olmo: 197X Silver Reed 2600CR Serial # 51099085 I must have some kind of curse with electric typebar machines, because this one doesn´t work either.

Why, one could ask. Well, it is yet ANOTHER damaged typewriter during shipping. It´s in excellent condition, but something is out of place inside it after being beaten by someone at the post office. It simply doesn´t work. The motor starts up, but typebars don´t move, the return key doesn´t work and that´s pretty much it.

I´m furious at the seller because he´s managed to destroy three good typewriters in one go: this one, an Erika 8 and an Amaya A-120. Good job, man...

I hope I can repair this one, but I´m a bit uneasy about dismantling an electric typewriter. Who knows what will pop up?

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.
