1988 Silver Reed EX32 Serial # 83114812 1988 Silver Reed EX32 typewriter, Serial # 83114812 Tas Kyprianou's 1988 Silver Reed EX32 typewriter. 2023-07-03 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Tas Kyprianou: 1988 Silver Reed EX32 Serial # 83114812 I was originally looking for an Olivetti Personal ET55 but stumbled across this for less than the price of a small coffee. I couldn't resist.
Sleek lines, Black & White "tuxedo" looks, Japanese manufactured. Boxes ticked.
I bought it to become a "base" version of my two Canon daisy wheels that are packed with features, whereas this by comparison isn't.
No word processing on the EX32 makes it a full-flow tappety tapper and its action and response is SUPERB. Excellent imprint and the stepper motor tension wire sounds like a guitar's G string when plucked. Nice and taught. This, for now, is my "pick up and tap out stuff on" machine. TONS of fun. I love it.

Ribbons can still be found. I've attached an image of the Pelikan equivalent.
Wheels, at least here in the UK, aren't so readily available. I only managed to find three different kinds online and all were around the Ā£20 mark. I could buy 10 more of these for that price . . .

UK member with Greek Cypriot heritage, living in London.
Relatively new to the hobby - My first machine was an Everest Mod 90 that I bought after watching a Violet Evergarden anime in December 2021.
My collection now consists of 41 machines.

My absolute favourite remains (just) my 1939 Royal KMM. For me, it's both the prettiest and the "warmest" to type on. It has "Majik" (with a nod to Sandy1)
I count my blessings that I am lucky enough to have amassed such a beautiful bunch.
