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.
RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Fox Portable 1 on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Fox Serial Number page and the Fox Portable 1 By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
