1956 Olympia SM3 Serial # 822508 1956 Olympia SM3 typewriter, Serial # 822508 Mike Green's 1956 Olympia SM3 typewriter. 2022-05-22 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mike Green: 1956 Olympia SM3 Serial # 822508 What great machines. Just about my favorite other than being a carriage shift. It had some carriage grinding but plenty of info out there about the easy fix: replacing the squashed rubber washers above the feet which lifts the body/carriage back up from the chassis.

So many machines to explore. I became interested in typewriters as a creative tool but then the collecting bug hit me and gave me an escape from writer's block. I hope I can land on one machine and start the writing.
