Question about Olivetti Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

Hello, My five year-old son learned about typewriters and wanted one for awhile. We just found an Olvetti Leterra 25 at Goodwill and bought it. I just got back from purchasing a ribbon, and my husband told me, "We have trouble." I do not know anything about typewriters but will try to explain the problem. The string that provides tension detached. We do not know where to reconnect this string. I hope this makes enough sense for you to help us. Thank you for your time!!! Becky

I have a Royal KMM typewriter that my parents purchased for me when I was in high school. It was used when they bought it. I am 64 years old so that tells you how long I've had it. It has been sitting in...

It has no real value any way. A really beautiful typewriter. He is right about the paint. I have not been able to find wrinkle paint for over 20 twenty years and have painted more than 200 old typewriters with regular paint with no problems. We overhaul these vintage typewriters for about $ 100.00 in our area.
