The one machine to have if you’re having only one…..
It works, but has a small issue with the basket shift. It won’t return up quite all the way, cutting off the letter bottoms.
This Remy is heading to a friend’s 10-year-old daughter, who’s been begging her parents for a typewriter.
Got this one on Craigslist for $20 – never seen one before or since. Removable platen. Workhorse machine.
Another cheap Craigslist find.
Now if I could just get this cool logo onto the SM9……
I bought this from the publisher of Typex, when he visited my home from Philadelphia last year. Great machine.
One thing about the Olivettis – they definitely had a distinctive look and vibe about them. The Saab of typewriters.
Despite the plastic outer chassis, it’s well made on the inside where it counts. A decent travel typer, and pretty quiet, too.
