Introducing my first Olympia typewriter!

Purchased from Value Village for $14.99+tax.  I gave the entire outer body and shell a good wash with dish soap and water, looks great!  Replaced the ribbon and had to adjust the vibrator which was slightly bent causing it to delay getting back in to its resting position between typing letters.  Types 12 characters per inch, great alignment.

I have to figure out how to adjust the carriage setting for the uppercase letters which are fading on the top, anyone with advise please let me know.

Coooool Looking Machine!  Or as we use to say in the 70’s…Groovy.
