I must have some kind of curse with electric typebar machines, because this one doesnÂ´t work either.
Why, one could ask. Well, it is yet ANOTHER damaged typewriter during shipping. ItÂ´s in excellent condition, but something is out of place inside it after being beaten by someone at the post office. It simply doesnÂ´t work. The motor starts up, but typebars donÂ´t move, the return key doesnÂ´t work and thatÂ´s pretty much it.
IÂ´m furious at the seller because heÂ´s managed to destroy three good typewriters in one go: this one, an Erika 8 and an Amaya A-120. Good job, man...
I hope I can repair this one, but IÂ´m a bit uneasy about dismantling an electric typewriter. Who knows what will pop up?

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.
