1964 Adler Tippa 1 Serial # 4519404 1964 Adler Tippa 1 typewriter, Serial # 4519404 Ian Brumfield's 1964 Adler Tippa 1 typewriter. 2014-09-03 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Ian Brumfield: 1964 Adler Tippa 1 Serial # 4519404 I got this wonderful Tippa 1 from none other than Duffy Moon, who lives in my locale. It came with the original manual and carrying case, and he was gracious enough to include a correction pencil with a brush on the end. The case needs a serious overhaul (our local upholsterer said that it was too much even for his equipment) and it is amazingly loud for such a small machine. The carriage is silent, though. What gives?

There is something that appears to be a cigarette burn on the right side, the margin release/typebar release causes the machine to seize up occasionally, and it has a pointed problem with ribbons equipped with a brad. The paper release and the carriage return lever on the right side of the carriage are in different positions than you'd expect, so that takes a little while to get used to. Those things said, I love this typer and once I find a way to make it quieter, it will be my go-to portable.

UPDATE: (4/26/14) Sold this machine to Richard Polt at the Cincinnati Spring Type-In. It was quite an event!

The case exterior is a tough faux leather, and the inside is an interesting plaid color scheme.

I love when a typewriter has the decal from the place where it was originally sold. It gives a history to the machine. The cigarette burn (?) is above the decal.

This typewriter is as thin as an iPhone is wide.

I've been hunting for typewriters since 2012, but I've loved them for long before that... about 2003. In the short amount of time in which I've started seriously collecting I've amassed a collection of over 65 machines (now specializing in Royals), one of which is parts. At the ripe old age of 20, to boot!

In November of 2013 I participated in National Novel Writing Month and hit a pretty decent 105,991 words; all written on manual machines. I think that this is a new record, but there isn't any official record keeping in the Typewriter Brigade.
