Made in Japan

an exploded view in a typewriter manual?


  1. Reminds me of the body style of the Olivetti Tropical, or even the Olympia Traveller de Luxe.

    The ribbon selector switch doesn't seem to be in any of the usual places, so perhaps it doesn't have one at all? That is really quite odd for such a recent typewriter!

  2. Yeah, that looks like a rebadged Olympia Traveller deLuxe. How is the key tension? That was the only issue I had with mine; it was just too stiff for my liking.

  3. Not very Brother-ish, so I'd say Silver Seiko. Also, since MOLG says it, I'd be willing to bet on it. Neat little machine.

  4. it is a bit tight, but i think also the carriage is sitting unevenly.
    it looks a lot like both of those but not exactly like either. i really wish i had searchable sears catalogs or something to nail down a time frame.


Let me know if capcha comes back. Thanks for commenting.
