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 40 machines. Nice round number. Time to stop I reckon. . .

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.
