1961 Olympia SM5 Serial # 1931427 1961 Olympia SM5 typewriter, Serial # 1931427 Imre Deneer's 1961 Olympia SM5 typewriter. 2017-10-24 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Imre Deneer: 1961 Olympia SM5 Serial # 1931427 Good looking SM5. Types smoothly, and works very well.

SM5 are generally budget models, sold for a lower price, and aren't as good as the higher end models (SM7, SM4). One of the things they skimmed off, are the felt padding on the inside. This means the machine makes quite a lot of noise when used.
To remedy this, I took of all side panels etc., and put on felt of my own. Now the machine is alot more quiet.
The rubber has also been refurbished, making for a good imprint.
