1962 Olivetti Studio 44 Serial # 345763 1962 Olivetti Studio 44 typewriter, Serial # 345763 Michael Bartelt's 1962 Olivetti Studio 44 typewriter. 2021-01-09 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Michael Bartelt: 1962 Olivetti Studio 44 Serial # 345763 Along with my Olympia SM-3, this Italian stallion is my best everyday typer. The type action on her is as smooth as they come. She was totally stripped and reconditioned by Ruben Flores in Highland Park, CA... great dude with typewriter mechanic pedigree. He and his father used to run one of the last typewriter repair shops in the LA-area out of a storefront on Figueroa before cruel rent hikes. He's now doing repairs out of his home. The setting may have changed, but Ruben works through the adversity by still honoring his father's memory with top notch, quality work.
