Professional Olympia Typewriter Restoration and Repair

At Mr and Mrs Vintage Typewriters, we are proud to be able to deliver high quality restoration and service to all types of Olympia Typewriters. 

The Picture above of an SM3 typewriter shows an illustration of how we nearly fully dismantled the whole machine for a proper clean and adjusting for a perfectly smooth typing experience. 

We take out the Carriage and clean all the rails with the ball bearing from all grease that accumulated throughout the years. On the one hand, the platen is taken out, treated, revived or replaced with a adding new rubber layer and then it will be put back again. 

As you can see in the picture as well, we took all the keys out and their segment. 

We will clean each key individually  and then flush the segment to return to original condition with nothing stopping the keys from moving freely and smoothly. 

Unfortunately the work done in the market is nearly a clean job and will never be as good as taking all the keys out and the carriage to flush all the dirt and grease for a smooth mechanical function.

I have an Olympia De Luxe with Case. I have the serial number but have no idea how to decode it to know the model. It has a couple of keys that stick and before I put any money in it, I would like to know what model and is it worth it. Any advice?

I have a ‘57 sm3. The carriage doesn’t move at all and I don’t want to force it. Looking in there is a spring in the escapement that could be blocking it. Not sure how I could remove carriage with this in there. Any ideas where that spring goes?

I have a Olympia Mod 8 typewriter that I would like to try and restore. Can you direct me to where I may be able to get parts. Especially a platen and the belt that allows the carrage tovad advance ( don’t know the proper name for it). Both the ribbon spool recesses arrangements have crumbled due to age. Could you also tell me the best way to clean up the metal work as its become tarnished.
Many thanks
