Not a great machine... I got it in a really bad conditiont. The carriage did not move, the types did not reach the paper, it was dirty and rusty... Fortunately, no parts missing.
After a nice repair session, the machine has come back to life. Now that I have used it a bit, I can tell it is not the best machine out there. Good for occasional typing, but forget about the "standard" feel of other portables.
However, it is an interesting model because it is attached to the transport suitcase, and it always goes with that enormous metal handle. By the way, the sound it makes is beautiful.

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.
