This machine was bought kind of as an experiment to see whether the faults with my other Tippa were due to the condition of the machine or all Tippas. Turns out it's the later. On both machines I can type fast enough that the spacebar doesn't register. But that just means you have to go a little slower is all. These are decent machines, and for a backpack nothing is smaller or lighter! Found for $54 on eBay and all I and to do was clean it up and replace the rubber washers for the ribbon cover mount.
