Gifted to friend (Sam)
You can type lightning fast, keeps up with touch typing, no skipping at all.
Lots of plastic, plastic body and ribbon cover, plastic spool pins. Still very heavy machine.
Really very nice to type on
Love the deep keys
Status: Typewriter Hunter
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.
