The lady who picked up the Tippa and Lettera 22 from me this afternoon was a satisfied customer, having already bought an Olympia SM3. As she left, she offered to let her network of female friends know I had typewriters for sale. Within a few hours I have received EIGHT requests for typewriters. You beauty!!!
Anyone know anything about the sliding comb under the key levers on these early model Olivetti Lettera 22s? I realise it blocks the key movement. But what exactly is the function of this? I note it was removed from the 32. Strikes me it is like the carriage lock on the Studio 42 - a bloody nuisance!
