1968 Adler J5 Serial # 4133818 1968 Adler J5 typewriter, Serial # 4133818 Mike Green's 1968 Adler J5 typewriter. 2022-05-22 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mike Green: 1968 Adler J5 Serial # 4133818 It has a plastic shell but is a sturdy and weighty machine underneath. Right carriage knob was shattered in shipping but all the pieces were there and I epoxied it back together. The carriage arm on these has a throw of 3 1/2" to advance the line. It throws 2 inches before any engagement. A Smith-Corona throws half an inch before engagement. Not a major annoyance, but just noting. One of my favorite typers for any long form work.

So many machines to explore. I became interested in typewriters as a creative tool but then the collecting bug hit me and gave me an escape from writer's block. I hope I can land on one machine and start the writing.
