1966 Consul 232 Serial # 6 232427782 1966 Consul 232 typewriter, Serial # 6 232427782 Javier Vazquez del Olmo's 1966 Consul 232 typewriter. 2017-12-21 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Javier Vazquez del Olmo: 1966 Consul 232 Serial # 6 232427782 I must admit I´ve done something wrong here and I still don´t know what. I got this little thing in working condition, I tinkered a bit with it and now I´ve blocked it. I still don´t know how, but I´ll find out.

The 232 is yet another great Consul portable. I honestly don´t know why this brand is not as well regarded as others. It´s not Olympia, but they made quite competent machines.

Until I fix it, I can´t say much about it. Looks like a nicer to the eye version of the 231, and overall it feels a bit more solid.

The first typewriter I saw was my grandpa´s Olivetti Linea 98 at the office. It was just a curio for me. Then I was given a Nakajima, which I didn´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.
