    typewriter…
    (78 items)

    This beautiful typewriter uses a swinging type-sector shaped like a partial wagon wheel instead of type-bars. The characters are molded onto the outside surface of the swinging-sector, which is rotated into position with the depression of a key, whereupon a spring-driven hammer strikes from behind. As a result, the paper is preloaded into a cylindrical holder, behind the platen, and unrolls up and out when one types.

      If I may make a suggestion? If you poste 1 or 2 a day, you get a lot better coverage & response. I like this sort of thing, but my mind, and others get calloused real quick.

      Thank you, that is a very good suggestion to not post too many typewriters in one day. I just got into catching up and just kept on going. I'm sorry for the overkill.

      If you like, please visit my collection at your leisure at http://www.antiquetypewriters.com.

      Cheers,

      Over 300 different typewriter designs were tried during the 1880s and 1890s.
      It was the wild west for typewriters.

      The Underwood, which appeared in 1896, would bring to an end this age of experimentation within a few short years and would set the standard design for the next century.
