1968 Adler J4 Serial # 4061194 1968 Adler J4 typewriter, Serial # 4061194 Steven Blake's 1968 Adler J4 typewriter. 2022-02-20 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Steven Blake: 1968 Adler J4 Serial # 4061194 German engineered - check. Solidly manufactured - check. Unique typeface - check. Modestly stylish, in a late 60s/early 70s fashion - check. What's not to like about Adler's portable typewriters? Well, maybe the moulded ABS outer shell. But even that seems to be well-made and the survival rate for these plastic typers is pretty high. One specific observation about this Adler J4: the stroke regulator (that's Adler's term) really works! I like a slightly softer touch, and most of the touch adjustments on typewriters I regularly use don't seem to make much difference. But the J4's stroke regulator is a welcome exception.
