1960 Adler Junior E Serial # 1610908 1960 Adler Junior E typewriter, Serial # 1610908 Kevin Stallaert's 1960 Adler Junior E typewriter. 2022-02-22 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Kevin Stallaert: 1960 Adler Junior E Serial # 1610908 I had obtained this machine to be used as a parts machine. The eagle is missing (unfortunately) and there was something odd going on with the tab brake. But because it also has the Ro 88 "Bruxelles" typeface (aka Adler Esquire), I decided to try and get this machine back in good order. And I succeeded! Great machine, light typer. Very fun to use.

I fell into the typewriter rabbit hole due to nostalgia: I used to have a massive Olympia SG1 when I was a kid. It formed my typing habits, which is why I am called a "furious typer" by my coworkers. Came across the r/typewriters page on Reddit which rekindled my love for these wonderful machines. Lets just hope I don't start pushing screens off my desk when I reach the end of a line...

I also have a modest Youtube channel where I document the progress of my typewriter journey: https://www.youtube.com/@Slug_Life
