197X Olivetti Studio 46 Serial # 2911255 197X Olivetti Studio 46 typewriter, Serial # 2911255 Javier Vazquez del Olmo's 197X Olivetti Studio 46 typewriter. 2017-10-04 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Javier Vazquez del Olmo: 197X Olivetti Studio 46 Serial # 2911255 Another donation, and another Olivetti Studio 46.

The Studio 46 is fairly common in Spain, and in fact many people don´t know what to do with them. More than a donation this has been a rescue mission, because it was going to go to the junkyard.

While it´s not a wold-conquering machine, the Studio 46 is decent enough. It has a weird touch and it´s a little bit too noisy, but works well.

This one has a broken drawband and it´s a bit dirty, but nothing too serious.

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.
