Olympia Monica De Luxe

Hi I've just come into possession of an Olympia Monica de Luxe. I think from mid to late 80's. I wonder does anyone have any experience or manual for this model. Seems to be in perfect condition, sourcing new ribbon today.
Many thanks

Re: Olympia Monica De Luxe

The Monica De Luxe was heavily based on the Olympia SM9.  Basically it is a cheapened version, although still an excellent typewriter.  Here is a link to an instruction book for the SM9 [url=http://site.xavier.edu/polt/typewriters/OlympiaSM9-1970s.pdfYou will find that although the SM9 looks a little different to your Monica, all the controls and functions are in the same places and do the same things.    I hope that this helps !]http://site.xavier.edu/polt/typewriters/OlympiaSM9-1970s.pdf

Brilliant, thank you so much for the information. It's amazing to see my teenage kids fascinated by the mechanics of a typewriter. I even did the Shining "All work and no play..." To much amusement!

Re: Olympia Monica De Luxe

Just to be clear, given the sub-forum you posted in, do you own a Monica de Luxe, or a Monica Electric de Luxe because those are two very different machines.

Re: Olympia Monica De Luxe

Yes, my reply was about a MANUAL Monica De Luxe.  As Uwe says, the electric version is an entirely different machine !
