if anyone knows of anywhere I could pass these on too that would be helpful

As before, I'd be interested in anything on the Olivetti series 20 adding machines (and am happy to pay postage).

PM sent.

I realise they will be heavy but I am happy to pay for normal postage on those manuals (sent as several parcels if necessary/more convenient).

My dad worked for British Olivetti from the late 50s until he retired in the late 80s. Starting off building typewriters through being technical branch manager at Coventry branch and ending up repairing electronic machines. He designed a magnetic stripe head relapping machine to prolong the life of building society pass book readers. All with no formal training and indeed no schooling at all in this country.
He spent many hours over the years doing “foreigners” for the owners of the Summa Prima adding machine. He could easily undercut the official price for repairs to this machine and many small businesses could therefore continue to use them long after they were “uneconomic” to repair.

Oddly enough he left very few spare parts so most of the repairs must have been adjustments after heavy handed use. Never ever saw him use a technical manual for them.

Over the years I picked up a couple of Summa Primas just for old times sake but both need some work I’m sure.

Tony: if I ever try repairing them may I approach you as you will be the custodian of the manual please?

Wouldn’t mind seeing a Programma 101 again, would be the first time since 1968. Be interesting to see if the magnetic card I used then (and still have) still has a readable copy of the square rooting program that was on it.

Cheers,

Peter

Of course I will help with whatever information I can.

I will possibly scan the manuals at some point which might make things easier. I more often work on HP calculators (desktops and handhelds) but I love all calculating machines.

Thanks Tony, much appreciated.
I’m glad that there is still an interest in old calculators, there must have been thousands of Olivetti mechanical machines in regular use but have not seen one for many years now.
Olivetti had a huge presence in the calculator and accounting machine market until electronics took over. They had a British head office in Berkeley Square, London and branches in many UK towns. All gone now, not even an UK office I believe.
