1901 Ideal A2 Serial # 3383 1901 Ideal A2 typewriter, Serial # 3383 Geir Kihle Hanssen's 1901 Ideal A2 typewriter. 2022-12-08 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Geir Kihle Hanssen: 1901 Ideal A2 Serial # 3383 Ideal A2 from 1901. Bought from someone in Sweden who had kept this in storage in not the best location so there is some very definitive rust problems. It does type however. Another problem is that the draw band snapped, so to actually type on it requires me to manually push the carriage myself. It'll undergo rust removal and repairs in due time, but it'll take a bit of time before I have the time to take on a project like this. I absolutely will though!

I am a Norwegian fellow who enjoys tinkering and fixing up typewriters. One day I decided I wanted a typewriter to write letters on. I bought one that turned out not to work. I got annoyed and decided I should be able to figure out what was wrong and fix it. I did it, but the rush of successfully mending such an intricate machine was like a drug. I wanted more. I decided I would try to buy non-functioning, but pretty machines, fix them and sell them before repeating the process. What I didn't expect was that I would fall in love with the machines I fix so now I suddenly find myself a bit of a collector.
