1929 Orel 30 Serial # 372572 1929 Orel 30 typewriter, Serial # 372572 Milan Berta's 1929 Orel 30 typewriter. 2021-05-14 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Milan Berta: 1929 Orel 30 Serial # 372572 Czechoslovak variant of the Adler 30 model. Another iron scrap in my collection of typewriters. The seller did not want to reduce the price, He said he would rather throw the machine away. So I bought it quite expensive. To my surprise, after a few hours of cleaning the typewriter works. Not 100%, but it works. An interesting solution for braking a free ribbon spool - an ordinary but hard piece of wire, attached to the top plate. Otherwise, the ribbon jumps out of the ribbon guide. And no less interesting is the metal part that locks the carriage during transport. Czech keyboard.

Historical typewriters, cameras, sewing machines, ... - all beautiful things, that work only on the basis of human skill and ability. Therefore, they deserve our attention and respect. I do not want to let those inventions that pushed us forward much faster than we were prepared, them disappear in this way.

Lives in Michalovce, Slovakia. Proud father of two children. Started collecting in March 2020. More a hunter than a collector or restorer. But determined to change it and bring the machines to a new life. Thank you in advance for any of your advice and help. (English is not my strong side, so I use Uncle Google's help. Correct me anytime).
