The Typewriter Database 195x Western Stamping Co Tom Thumb Serial # none From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Michael Hoehne: 195x Western Stamping Co Tom Thumb Serial # none There seem to be several different versions of Tom Thumbs.

These are usually in bad condition when found. They were, after all, kids’ toys and most took quite a beating. How the makers imagined that their cheap construction out of lightweight materials could have withstood kids, I can’t figure.

3-bank typewriter. No tabs. No margin setting on either side. No line space/carriage return lever. No ribbon color accommodation.

While I find all of mankind's inventions interesting, I am most enchanted by the human-scale arts and devices, the ones that can be created (and repaired) in a home workshop or studio; the ones that can be understood by looking at them; the ones that do something useful or stir admiration. Typewriters work for me.
