1962 Facit TP1

Serial #P 301554

This is a good fin that could be an awesome find, but it has a little problem.

A flawless Fact TP1 from Paris, with all documentation, case and well looked after. In addition, it came at a good price. A great deal for a great typewriter!

Like all Facits, it´s so reliable that it can become dull. Nothing ever fails, everything is so safe an precise... No complaints at all. So, where´s the little problem?

Broken drawband.

The first typewriter I saw was my grandpa´s Olivetti Linea 98 at the office. It was just a curio for me. Then I was given a Nakajima, which I didn´t use and my grandfather took it from me because it was easier to handle than the bulky Linea 98.

Now I own that typewriter, and I started a little collection in Valladolid, Spain. The Nakajima, which is "my" typewriter is the only one which is NOT in my collection. How ironic...

Things then got... complex. I moved from Valladolid to my village, and suddenly found myself with a lot of room available at home, so the small collection is turning into something bigger, a nuisace for my family and a great source of satisfaction for me.

Want to keep your typewriter healthy? Look after it! :D

Apart from the travel case, there´s also this nice dust cover which looks like it´s never been used.

Touch control, and it works fine.
