I accidentally found this model of the Torpedo typewriter while inspecting another typewriter. I did not know that such a model existed.
Powerful and heavy. Rough bakelite covers and legs. But it works perfectly. Only 2250 pieces were produced.
Interesting arrangement of buttons on the right side, as well as their green color and some characters. Slovak 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).
