Yep. Got the SM4 (for $20!). I have not seen it yet other than photos...

Uwe, you make a very good point regarding PVC (offgassing, etc)... that's enough for me to stick with JJ short. Thanks

Turboplaten...hmmm. I learned something new. Now I'm curious about it as well.

  Either way, "Miles Davis playing the trumpet," is an apt description of typing with this!


 

Beautiful description...

Sorry I can't answer any of your questions... newbie collector myself, but with similar issues... my collection os growing and hardly any time to clean them up... It's going to have to be a winter project.

If the tab stops can be set from the keyboard it's a SM9. If the tab stops have to be manually set from the back of the carriage it's a SM8.
 

Just arrived and I opened it up. It's an SM9 (keyboard tab stops)... and I didn't realize this until after I won the auction, but it appears to be a long carriage version. I might not have bid if I noticed, but it was a quick bid that I didn't really anticipate winning, but it was a nice surprise that I did.

Right now I do not have an SM9 (one is on the way, or it might be an SM8, not entirely sure) but I do have an SM3 and two Olivetti Lettera 32s and an Olivetti Lettera 22. Each are very appealing in their own way. If I had to choose, I think I would take the SM3 first, but the Lettera 32 was the first in my collection (both) and I have a sweet spot for them. Not sure this helps
