Meet the Adler Privat

  1. Great design. The carriage return lever is very expressionistic, indeed. Like that. It almost looks like a silver surfer.

  4. Adjusting those compression springs looks as complicated as tuning a piano. It certainly looks a beautifully built machine.

  5. Thanks for sharing design details. It appears to be a very well engineered machine. I like the unibody approach for the carriage rails (or whatever they are called).

  6. What a wonderful machine. Very Teutonic, with lots of fiddly bits (:

    I'm not a huge fan of the plastic Adlers, but the pre-60's ones sure look intriguing!

  7. Handsome typewriter. Even the case looks great.

  8. There's nothing like 1950s design for combining utility with beauty, in my opinion.

    Perhaps there are some examples from that era which could be considered "plain" or "clunky". But this machine is particularly attractive. Great pictures!

  9. That's an amazing typewriter there. Totally different in design from my J2 then. It looks ahead of its time!

  10. Hi I have such a typewriter if someone is interested, please contact me at this e-mail address (zssandor@yahoo.com). It is in a fine shape, from what I can tell it was barely used.
