Hi Curta community!

Like many have posted before... I desperately fell in love with the mechanical beauty and intricacy of the Curta calculators! I saw one the first time in the computer history museum and that was it... I needed to have one! Since then I was outbid too many times on ebay...so I would like to give this here a try. If you have a nice Curta for sale, please let me know. I don't have a real preference in regards to the type.

Thank you!

Andre

Hi Andre,
besides repairing curtas, I also have a few ready for sale.
They are all serviced, mechanically perfect and guaranteed.
If you are interested, I can send you some photos.

Andre, I've been at this a while now and if you're going to get just one Curta I would recommend you get one that's already been cleaned and serviced. Yes they cost more, but not close to as much as you buying one off eBay and then sending it off for service after you buy it.

I have no business relationship with Romano but he has a good reputation with us here; if I were looking to buy a machine, I'd look at his first. Best of luck

Thanks to both of you for the feedback!

Romano, what do you have for sale right now? I checked your website and could not find anything (I browsed on my phone).

Hi Andre,
The curtas I prepare for sale are just a few and they frequently change, so I don't show them in the website, which I rarely update (it's not a kind of job I like doing).
If you let me have your email, I can send you some photos with the curtas prices.
Regards,
Romano
