I've always wondered--what is the purpose of the little knob on the left side?Such marvelous little typewriters they are.
Nick, it's a touch control dial, two settings.
Very compact! Looks about the same size as a Remington 2 with the typebars in the resting position; how do they compare? Now that's a nice project that would be fun to have replicated. I happen to know a couple of leather shops; maybe I'll see if they can make something like that...
Wait -- the ad seems to promise that a girl will be inside. Didn't you get one?
A totally delightful find!John Lambert's Tippa briefcase can be seen here.The ads are interesting, with their clever snippets of text: "'Whenever Herr Rudi enters such a lion's den, he entrusts me to a lady.' -- The TIPPA typewriter will give you more details in its intimate diary.""'I was so curious about how far things had gone with Fräulein Christa, but we left immediately -- for Paris.' -- The TIPPA tells of all its experiences there in the intimate diary of a typewriter."Now we must get our hands on that diary!!
Beautiful! I hop you enjoy your Tippa case as much as I do mine. And I agree about buying just for the case. If you could find the craftmanship today it would be at least $200, probably a lot more.My black Tippa and case have accompanied me here to Freeport Maine for a much-needed vacation. u might not think that a typewriter and its case would enjoy a vacation or the seacoast of Maine, but I assure you my Tippa and its leather case do.John Lambert
Oh, you've got 'Im. That's a beautiful setup. I really love this kind of casework. Just beautiful.
Does anyone know what the metal clips on either side about midway are for on the Tippa?
