Vertwijfelde draagbare poging

De laatste telg van de Hammond-familie is de Folding uit 1923 - ook gekend als Model 26. Hij is niet meer dan een Multiplex met opvouwbaar toetsenbord, dat hem wat compacter maakt. Een vertwijfelde poging tot een draagbare machine, zoals de Corona, Underwood en Remington, die dan furore maken. En de enige Hammond, die niet met een halfrond toetsenbord kán worden gemaakt, omdat je dat niet recht kan plooien ...

Einde van een merk

Enkele jaren later verkopen de Hammond-aandeelhouders hun bedrijf en wordt deze Hammond Folding herdoopt tot 'Varityper'.

Desperate portable attempt

The last Hammond offspring is the Folding from 1923, also known as 'Model 26'. It is not much more than a Multiplex with a folding keyboard that makes it more compact. It is a desperate attempt to make a portable machine like the Corona, Underwood and Remington that are all the rage. It is the only Hammond that cannot be made with a semicircular keyboard as that cannot be folded straight.

End of a brand

A few years later the Hammond shareholders sell their company and this Hammond Folding is renamed 'VariTyper'.
