1973 Olympia SG3

Serial #7-2972309

A nice SG3 which was sluggish when I got it and now a few hours later is well on the road to recovery. More use will fix it. This one lacks the paper injector but makes up for that with the roman typeface at 12 cpi whereas my other one has a techno face at the more usual 11 cpi. And the paper support is intact---so that’s what they look like!

It has a property sticker for a nearby school district, so we can feel good that at least a few of our tax dollars bought some quality.

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.
