1970 Facit Privat Serial # 792179 1970 Facit Privat typewriter, Serial # 792179 Kewin Sanfridsson's 1970 Facit Privat typewriter. 2022-11-03 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Kewin Sanfridsson: 1970 Facit Privat Serial # 792179 Here we got a Swedish typewriter from 1970, a Facit Privat. This was my first Privat typewriter also my first typewriter with a leather case. It have a wonderful typeface I must say but I don't like how the keyboard feels though, it kind a feels mushy like typeing on a sponge. The only thing I can remark on this specific machine is that it has a few paint chipps on the left edge of the ribbon hood from wear and a little scuff on the carriage release lever.

Hi my name is Kewin and I'm a 23 years old from Sweden. I have a few hobbies like drawing and playing guitar but I do also like myself some project here and there which is where my interest in typewriters fits in. I have always collected things through my life but I did not expect typewriters to be my next big passion in collecting. I started collecting typewriters in the beginning of 2022 and so far I have 52 of them (3 of which is currently disassembled) . I find it really enjoyable to pickup a typewriter at a thrift store/second hand and starting to clean it up and get it to a working condition to the best of my ability and knowledge. (Excuse all the dog hairs in my pictures, I do actually try to remove the hair before taking the pictures. xD) Cheers!
