In the Case of the Gossen Tippa Pilot Portable Typewriter



























IT'S A JUNGLE DOWN THERE ...

What a pretty typewriter and typeface -- I think my own Tippa Pilot may have it too, but I'll have to check. I will take the liberty of adding the user's manual to my online collection!

Wow...

I don't have a Tippa, but I do find useful the test sheet. I'll make something like that to go with my typewriters!

It's the first typewriter I've seen that can also be used for baking. Or at least I assume it can as it has a "Sift Lock" key.

Your jungle room photos look familiar. My little storage room has a similar feel. It's funny, I'm so particular about having the case when I buy machines. The fate of that sought-after case is to moulder in seclusion.

One day we will be hearing of an Australian fellow who was puttering about his garage and was buried under an avalanche of typewriter cases. It will take 3 days, 20 men and 2 rescue dogs to find and extract the poor fellow.

At least when they get you out, you'll still have the case you wanted clenched in one hand :D

Starting to feel a bit radical here. I always (always) put my portables back in the case as soon as I have finished using them. Surely, caselessness is for standards, that's what they're for.

Funny type sample! I've mostly seen them from top row to bottom row, but not like this going up and down and up again.
