1952 Halda P

Serial #21585

When it arrived, it had an issue with the ribbon advance system. The seller had told me about it and I was optimistic that I could fix it.
Took me about 2 hours. A spring inside the mechanics had come loose and also one spool had a slightly bent "catch-finger" which pops out once the ribbon has come to the end.
So, after a few ours of minor repairs and some cleaning, this is now a fine typewriter.

Halda P and Facit TP-1 typewriters have the lightest touch of all typewriters that I tested so far. For me, this is important, since I experience pain in my finger-joints ever so often.

The font-code is 1-C CSA.
I didn't measure it yet, but I would think it's a 10cpi, maybe a little smaller, but by far no 12cpi.

I will fill the "schmasch"-website little by little with some additional information on my typewriters. (
