1917 Fox Portable 1 Serial # 949 1917 Fox Portable 1 typewriter, Serial # 949 Evan Bezeredi's 1917 Fox Portable 1 typewriter. 2019-05-01 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Evan Bezeredi: 1917 Fox Portable 1 Serial # 949 I am currently in search of a parts machine or a machine someone will let me take apart and take molds and measurements of missing parts. If you're interested in helping, please send me an email at thetinkeringtypist at gmail dot com.

This Fox Portable No. 1 comes from the first year of production. Needs repair. Missing a right platen knob, line space advance mechanism, and carriage return lever. All typeslugs are present and intact as is the carriage folding mechanism. Most importantly, the escapement and drawstring are present and functional. A prime candidate for resurrection. One of my few must have typewriters.

I work with modern technology during the week while repairing and rejuvenating antiquated technology on the weekend! I'm a small time collector that's more interested in servicing and repairing typewriters than collecting them.
