Finally, a QDL.
For sure in other parts of the world there's the real risk of inadvertedly tripping on one of these, falling over and losing a tooth. In fact, the QDL has more galleries here in the TWDB than any other typewriter. Granted, it's not a single model, but nor is the Olivetti M40 (the first typewriter that has come to mind when thinking about different series in a model). As I was saying, common but not in Spain. Not many of these around here, and those which pop up from time to time are less than desirable due to the condition, the price or both. This typewriter had a good price tag (10 euros) and apparent good condition (lacking ribbon, though), and when it arrived home the condition turned up to be a little worse than expected. Nothing serious, but this compact workhorse deserves a little care to perform at the level it's expected. The bad thing is apart from the basic maintenance issues, there's the bad, baaaad habit of skipping spaces. Again, this can be a maintenance issue, but it can take time if there's stuff where it shouldn't. All in all, a decent one with potential to become a really good one.

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.
