1947 Olivetti Studio 42 Serial # 621688 1947 Olivetti Studio 42 typewriter, Serial # 621688 Nick Winter's 1947 Olivetti Studio 42 typewriter. 2018-04-21 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Nick Winter: 1947 Olivetti Studio 42 Serial # 621688 Bought for pennies at auction as a repair skill-building exercise. This thing was ruined cosmetically and mechanically: no case lid, peeling paint, missing front trim, broken or stuck everything, harbouring epic quantities of gunk and dust...

Happy to report it's now working great, after a prolonged battle with sticky typebars! Putting aside things that can't be fixed like the missing components, it's now a pleasure to type on. Love a good diamond in the rough.

Possibly the most amateur typewriter collector ever? Uni student located in Sydney, AUS. The amount of storage I have is a constant problem as I try to keep feeding my addiction...
