50's styling, Lots of chrome.
Stunning to type on with its spring loaded keys.
Very over-engineered German quality.
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.
If your machine is making a racket when pushing the carriage to the right, your silencer may be broken. This part must be correctly fitted and not broken, even if the larger supplementary spring is there otherwise you'll get a nasty rasping noise as the dog hits the escapement. Replacing is a challenging and fiddly job, but I did it, I may post a blog at some point
