Sears Tower Attache, Type-In Preparation, and June Typing Test


This Classic 12 was going to Read & Write Kalamazoo, but they have yet to claim it.


It's a keeper.  After using it I decided it will stay in the collection.


The Attache case.  Looks upside down. The typewriter sits on the lid.




I kept the typewriter on the pad. It can be removed and the pad becomes a writing surface.

  1. Oooh, love the Attache' - pretty sure I mentioned I was jealous when you found it. I think i'd try to swap the return lever and attache case into a 1950's US-made Skyriter and make it perfect. (:

    1. It sure would make typing more pleasurable.

  2. Things certainly are busying up for you Bill, isn't that always the way, it never rains but it pours! I'll never forget learning to type to The William Tell Overture, it really helped ☺ How odd the red case for the typwriter is, even the locks are upside down!

    1. I have wondered how many times someone opened the typewriter upside down. Not only that if it is opened normally the springs on the clasps are quite powerful and the clasps will snap your thumbs or fingers, whichever happens to be in the way of the opening clasp. I will admit it is a neat idea to put a small typewriter in a small case, but quite unusual at the same time.

  3. Nice to see different typewriters and the way they are typed. They differ in the font...
