Wow! Every time I resolve to do better with these quizzes, you make them even trickier. This is a rather difficult angle to judge... I'll say Olympia SM-3?

Florian, I'd love to join your quizzes but I've not been very good at identifying. So I'll just follow you silently and avoid getting egg on my face. ( :

Olivetti Lettera 32, and the paper guide roller looks very familiar. Could be a 22 though...

your quizzes are tough for me you have machines I don't see often. I agree about the rollers looking Olivetti-esque however. Not big enough for a Studio 44 - or ARE they?

Adwoa hat gesagt…

Oh, I see the SM3 was in yesterday's question. Silly me for not noticing. In this case I think deek has hit upon the right answer with the Lettera 32...

Richard P hat gesagt…

Olivetti MP1, or maybe Studio 42.

Dwayne F. hat gesagt…

I second Richard's assessment. I haven't seen the inside of a Studio 42, but it looks a lot like the business end of a MP1.

tr0x hat gesagt…

Olivetti MP1, my 42 is a bit different.

Rob Bowker hat gesagt…

Well, Imperial portables have naked bail rollers too - but it isn't one of those. The teardrop cutaway should be a pointer - but I haven't seen one before so I'm stumped. If this was a game of cricket, you have bowled a googlie!
