Re: SG Owners Club

I'm not German so my spelling comes from memory only, but I believe it stands for "schreibmaschinen grosse", or something pretty close to that.


Bangin' around, this dirty old town, typin' for nickels and dimes...

Re: SG Owners Club

Welcome to the SG club, Captain Spencer! Nice SG at a nice price! How about a type sample of that typeface you like so much?

Olympia used three model designators for a number of years: SF, SM, and SG.

SF = Schreibmaschine Flach (flat typewriter - what we call an ultra-portable)
SM = Schriebmaschine Mittelgross (medium large typewriter - what we call a portable)
SG = Schreibmaschine Gross (large typewriter - what we call a standard)

C'mon in, the water is fine and there's plenty of room. Drinks are usually served around 17:00.

Re: SG Owners Club

Newly purchased SG1!!!!!!!!

Gosh, I've been through many portables that I've since lost count of how many. This is my first standard purchase. I'm San Diego and a friend (now bumped up to a great friend  )  was willing to pick it up for me until I'm able to find the time to drive up to Los Angeles. Seller was asking $145 just for the typewriter which was displayed on a typing stand. We finally agreed on $90 for both they typewriter and typewriter stand. It was sitting in a video producer's office unused. Apparently their company's designer bought it for display for a video production. He says that it works but the keys are sticky. Bonus, it has the plastic paper support. Crossing my typing fingers that there are no major problems. I'm sooo excited!
I would attach a pic but new to this board. It looks like I can only attach a pic via link?

You have to have 3 posts in order to post a picture and yes you have to host the picture elsewhere.  There is an FAQ about posting pictures.

Re: SG Owners Club

Thanks, I always try to do a search before asking. I just saw one about Flicker. I'll have to look deeper although I don't have an online site.
