1965 Facit TP1 Serial # P405851 1965 Facit TP1 typewriter, Serial # P405851 Loser types's 1965 Facit TP1 typewriter. 2022-06-06 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Loser types: 1965 Facit TP1 Serial # P405851 My great-grandfathers machine, types really nicely and the carriage is so smooth as it runs on bearings, needed lots of cleaning due to old erasings that have mixed with oil in so it was very hard to clean but i cleaned it up and it works reliably after a very VERY long deep clean, flush and clean multiple times so the ribbon drive shaft moves and i had to tighten a screw hidden on the side for the ribbon lift which had come loose so the lift was unreliable while typing, it took me 6 months and creative thinking for homemade tools but now this machine is my favourite ever and despite its few scuffs and dings it still remains as the nicest machine ever.

Description:

My great-grandfathers machine, types really nicely and the carriage is so smooth as it runs on bearings, needed lots of cleaning due to old erasings that have mixed with oil in so it was very hard to clean but i cleaned it up and it works reliably after a very VERY long deep clean, flush and clean multiple times so the ribbon drive shaft moves and i had to tighten a screw hidden on the side for the ribbon lift which had come loose so the lift was unreliable while typing, it took me 6 months and creative thinking for homemade tools but now this machine is my favourite ever and despite its few scuffs and dings it still remains as the nicest machine ever.
