1934 Torpedo 17 Serial # 195637 1934 Torpedo 17 typewriter, Serial # 195637 Milan Berta's 1934 Torpedo 17 typewriter. 2021-02-04 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Milan Berta: 1934 Torpedo 17 Serial # 195637 I found this supposedly rare typewriter. Apart from the manufacturer's label, I do not know the difference between the variants of models 17 and 17b. Can anyone advise me how to repair the ribbon moving mechanism? The bell spring is missing. Other things are already fixed and working. Czech keyboard.

Historical typewriters, cameras, sewing machines, ... - all beautiful things, that work only on the basis of human skill and ability. Therefore, they deserve our attention and respect. I do not want to let those inventions that pushed us forward much faster than we were prepared, them disappear in this way.

Lives in Michalovce, Slovakia. Proud father of two children. Started collecting in March 2020. More a hunter than a collector or restorer. But determined to change it and bring the machines to a new life. Thank you in advance for any of your advice and help. (English is not my strong side, so I use Uncle Google's help. Correct me anytime).
