The third Baby at home, and I was more or less forced to acquire this one. A good friend badly wanted to sell it, so I bought / rescued the typewriter. IÂ´m not a big fan of the Baby, but IÂ´ve ended up with three of them and I still donÂ´t have any of the newer generation.
The typewriter isnÂ´t in good shape. Everything points at a bad repairing attempt because the mainspring drum is wrongly mounted and the back panel isnÂ´t properly fixed to the body. Most probably the spring lost tension and someone tried to fix it but didnÂ´t succeed.
It doesnÂ´t work and IÂ´m in no hurry to fix it, but IÂ´ll eventually do it.

The first typewriter I saw was my grandpaÂ´s Olivetti Linea 98 at the office. It was just a curio for me. Then I was given a Nakajima, which I didnÂ´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.
