1934 Rheinmetall Portable Serial # 163330 1934 Rheinmetall Portable typewriter, Serial # 163330 Aaron Friedrich Lotar Rolf Klamp's 1934 Rheinmetall Portable typewriter. 2023-12-02 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Aaron Friedrich Lotar Rolf Klamp: 1934 Rheinmetall Portable Serial # 163330 Made in early 1934. I puchased this Rheinmetall Portable from another collector via ebay. The feet of the typewriter and case were totally hartened and one of the machine had bin lost allready.
A friend of mine, who is a magnificent artist and craftsman, made me a new set of feet out of Grenadilla wood for the Typewriter and the case. ( Have to make and update some detailed pictures of them). Of course they had to be made very precise and in the same shape as the originals, to fit into the mountings in the case.

Grenadilla is an African wood, that has some similarities to Ivory. It is hard, has a dense structure that is dark with some bright spots and a self oiling characteristic, which makes an surface coating (oil, varnish) obsolete.

I overhauled some little flaws at the case and removed dust at it and in the Typewriter itself.
