This was a nice $10 score yesterday. It needed some good cleaning on the outside but otherwise is a clean and happy typer. It did lose the metal badge that says "olivetti-underwood Studio 45", but who's complaining?
This is my first experience with these larger, newer (Post Studio 44) "Studio" machines by Olivetti. It's bigger than the Lettera 32 machine, and I like it's typing feel and action better. It's a nice typewriter all around, has a very easy feel and in many ways resembles the typing experience of a Lettera 32 but it's just bigger and nicer, perhaps the keystroke is longer.
The case is pretty cool too. This one has a pica typeface.

I've spent my life as a mechanical and electronics tinkerer, bikes, cars, lawnmowers, appliances, cameras, audio gear, guitars, amplifiers, and pedal steel guitars. I was trained as a typist for 2 years back in the late 70's on IBM Selectric II's. At home I recall my mother having an Olympia SM3. More recently we got our daughter a typewriter for Christmas, and that somehow sparked my own personal interest in these fine and interesting machines. Now it's a habit that just won't quit. Daily searches on Craigslist, frequent trips to antique stores & malls, garage sales, etc. It's a fun and healthy addiction.
