Not so fascinating Facit

I hope that comes off...

Now (after reading more on Facit) I have found that this machine may be a minor victim of the so-called "Facit problem", when these swedish typers get all stiff and (in bad cases) the carriage stops moving because of some strong oil used by the factory... or something along those lines. Though I am not sure how, I will try my best to un-stiffen this typer.


  1. I sort of like the case, but it is a bit big in my opinion and is difficult to find a place to store. The typewriter is a fair machine, but nothing to sing the praises of.

  2. I really like the one Facit (TP1) I have, but perhaps the 1620 is not as good. :)

    1. Yeah, I heard a lot about the TP1 so I really got my hopes up on the 1620. Ill have to see how well it types after a good cleaning...
