The German Adler Tippa was one of the best lightweight portable typewriters ever manufactured, with a design heritage stretching back to the Gossen Tippa of the 1950's.   In the late 1960's, Triumph-Adler began producing a luxury version of this machine - the Tippa 'S'.   The 'Tippa S' featured a settable tabulator - quite a rarity on a machine of this class.   This particular Tippa 'S' seems to have been looked after, and is in good condition.  A well-featured machine, with a 44-character keyboard, it also has five sliding tabulator stops at the rear of the carriage to enable indented paragraphs or simple column work to be produced.   The machine has an excellent and light keyboard 'touch' which really feels like German precision engineering when it is being used.  This machine takes a ribbon which is in current production and readily available .
