1970 Olympia SG3

Serial #7-2340296 frame; 8-2384206 carriage

A graphic illustration of the relative sizes of an Olympia SM9 and an Olympia SG3. The family resemblance is obvious; the size difference is surprising.

This is the S (or the L?) model. 13 inch platen; has the paper inserter; missing paper support; sluggish and a bit scratched but not bad---should loosen up with use.

And it did loosen up with use. And it has a strong techno typeface. The serial numbers on the frame and the carriage do not match; how common is that?

While I find all of mankind's inventions interesting, I am most enchanted by the human-scale arts and devices, the ones that can be created (and repaired) in a home workshop or studio; the ones that can be understood by looking at them; the ones that do something useful or stir admiration. Typewriters work for me.
