1970 Olympia SG3

Serial #7-2384738

I didn't really need another one of these behemoths, but for $20, it was too hard to resist. After all, this may be the best manual typewriter in the world. These things are just amazing, they type SO fast and with such a nice feel. The machine quality is as good as it gets. The ease of service and cleaning with the two levers that release the carraige, it's just a great machine for hardcore typing work. This one is in really good shape, needed a ribbon and basic cleaning. It's got a smaller elite typeface

I've spent my life as a mechanical and electronics tinkerer, bikes, cars, lawnmowers, appliances, cameras, audio gear, guitars, amplifiers, and pedal steel guitars. I was trained as a typist for 2 years back in the late 70's on IBM Selectric II's. At home I recall my mother having an Olympia SM3. More recently we got our daughter a typewriter for Christmas, and that somehow sparked my own personal interest in these fine and interesting machines. Now it's a habit that just won't quit. Daily searches on Craigslist, frequent trips to antique stores & malls, garage sales, etc. It's a fun and healthy addiction.
