195x Olivetti Studio 42 Serial # 801719 195x Olivetti Studio 42 typewriter, Serial # 801719 Piotr Trumpiel's 195x Olivetti Studio 42 typewriter. 2014-11-10 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Piotr Trumpiel: 195x Olivetti Studio 42 Serial # 801719 What a fantastic machine. Despite being in crinkly paint I do like it very, very much. The solidity and weight - you can see where Studio 44 came from, the touch remains very similar to Invicta/ICO. It has a personality too - showing in some springs singing to the hit of the typebars. The design bits are awesome:
1. infinity sign-shaped carriage lock
2. chunky colour ribbon selector and tabulator setting lever
3. chromed lip around the typebars
4. "ventillation" ducts at the back
5. big, fat rollers on paper bail
6. superb line spacing selector
7. line spacing selector marker years ahead of the Google's location marker
