I wasn’t even looking for this typewriter. I was searching for information on Olympia Model 8 and came across this. The pictures looked old… beat up… but I email about the spacer working… it did. It does. I never expected it to be working this well fresh off the delivery truck after a month in transit. Carpenter’s pencil for a space bar… plastic spool as a second spool… it works it spins… it types… the keys are so clean… with a little effort this will be my prize. Joy of Joys.
I was going to wait until I had worked on this… but it worked so well I could not wait to show it off.
