1970's Adler Tippa. Case from West Germany and typewriter made in Holland. Nice size, average to decent quality build. It's kind of noisy perhaps from the plastic body. It has a feel that's not as precision and with as tight of mechanical tolerances as my German-made Adler J5. It's a nice little typer for a compact portable. Pica typeface. Good case/cover too.
Status: Typewriter Hunter
I've spent my life as a mechanical and electronics tinkerer, bikes, cars, lawnmowers, appliances, cameras, audio gear, guitars, amplifiers, and pedal steel guitars. I was trained as a typist for 2 years back in the late 70's on IBM Selectric II's. At home I recall my mother having an Olympia SM3. More recently we got our daughter a typewriter for Christmas, and that somehow sparked my own personal interest in these fine and interesting machines. Now it's a habit that just won't quit. Daily searches on Craigslist, frequent trips to antique stores & malls, garage sales, etc. It's a fun and healthy addiction.
