1984 Olympia (Nakajima) Electronic Compact Serial # 42312925 1984 Olympia (Nakajima) Electronic Compact typewriter, Serial # 42312925 Pekka Sallinen's 1984 Olympia (Nakajima) Electronic Compact typewriter. 2024-02-08 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Pekka Sallinen: 1984 Olympia (Nakajima) Electronic Compact Serial # 42312925 I guess this is Nakajima, the type wheel is just plain wheel with no cassette. Swedish/Finnish characters. Why do they call this "Compact" beats me, it is no portable that is for sure. It is not too heavy though, it is an electronic one after all, mostly plastics.

This one types fairly well, I like the touch of the keyboard, but the line feed jumps gear or something and only advances a little, need to take it apart and investigate.Lift-off tape also does nothing, I wonder if I have wrong type of ribbon or if the liftoff tape has gone bad.

These take Gr. 187C type ribbon, also known as 2684SC.
