And... another one?!
The fourth Lettera 32 at home, and the third one I got for free (the one I paid for was 0,50 â¬).
This is anothr case of IÂ´m-gonna-thrash-it-do-you-want-it-or-not, so I said oh, yes, please, I want it! Another nice present, and this one came from Meri. Thanks a lot!
This one has seen little and bad maintenance at the same time. The case zipper needs heavy repairs and the worst thing is what someone did with the ribbon spool. Olivettis are picky with the spools and they donÂ´t work if you lose the nuts that hold the spools in place. In this case thereÂ´s no nut, and the spool has been replaced with someting incompatible, so the ribbon only winds one way (towards the original spool). IÂ´ll replace it, and I hope thatÂ´s enough.
As for the typewriter itself, it has a nice futuristic typeface and itÂ´s pretty much like any other Lettera 32: quite good and pointing towards really good.

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