1917 Adler 7 Serial # 138780 1917 Adler 7 typewriter, Serial # 138780 Javier Vazquez del Olmo's 1917 Adler 7 typewriter. 2015-06-08 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Javier Vazquez del Olmo: 1917 Adler 7 Serial # 138780 Now this is what I call a TYPEWRITER.

The Adler 7 is something that´s always lurking around the antiques market. It looks fantastic, and just by that it attracts many people, even those who are not specifically interested in typewriters. And they have managed to survive for almost a century, mainly due to their indestructible body and how cool they look.

I managed to get it at a reasonable price, hoping it could more or less work. Then I realized I couldn´t do it on my own, and I sent it to my trusted friend, who has needed five months to bring it back to life. He has needed to replace something (and he hasn´t told me what was it), but... but... Results speak for themselves. With new decals it would look impressive, but it has a lot of personality with the original ones. And it also came with its box!

It´s a true pleasure to type on it, although I still need a new ribbon (and these ones are hard to come by). It´s a truly incredible machine, and again it´s been worth every cent I paid for it. For sure it´s one of the finest typewriters I have, and I reccomend to everyone to try one of these if possible. They´re fantastic!

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 only returned home in 2017, almost 20 years later, when he wanted a better typewriter.

A collection that started small grew into something bigger, a nuisace for my family and a great source of satisfaction for me.
