After a little while without new incorporations, IÂ´ve found this compact powerhouse.
What attracted me was the fact that it was functional, and thatÂ´s always a big bonus.Add that the Torpedo 18 is a great typewriter, and you get a winning pack.
ItÂ´s not currently at 100% because it needs cleaning and oiling, but itÂ´s quite promising. Several keys are sluggish, but the rest work fine and I can picture how this beast will perform.
And then the bad part: Identification. I "think" itÂ´s a Dutch Torpedo because of the return lever, but I canÂ´t say if itÂ´s 18, 18a or 18b. Honestly, I canÂ´t tell one from another.

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.
