The Typewriter Database 197X Sundstrand (Antares) 2000 Serial # 805875 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Javier Vazquez del Olmo: 197X Sundstrand (Antares) 2000 Serial # 805875 Weird brand. At first I was lost with this one. Got it in a village near Toledo (Spain), and the owner knew nothign about this strange typewriter. Then I saw the label which tells where it came from: Rome.

So, an Italian typewriter with an unspeakable name. Next step, trying it. And then it became clear. It has almost the same machinery as this Antares S20 Efficiency (see links). The carriage is the same, and in general there are few differences. Maybe the keys feel more precise, but overall it´s an average to poor typewriter. It also needs repair, the quick release is broken and the right margin selector is jammed, so I have some fun ahead.

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.
