It's an olympia, so it's good. It WILL be good.
I basically stole this potentially brutal typewriter for 5 euros, knowing it needed repairs. That scared off other potential buyers, and I hope I can deal with whatever happens inside this engineering masterpiece. There's something that blocks the carriage, dead right in the middle of it. Nothing gets on the way if you type in capitals, though, because the carriage is raised a bit. Even that way, the action is a bit lazy for a SM. If I manage to find out what blocks the carriage I'll be satisfied enough.

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.
