    typewriter…

    James Hammond was one of the great typewriter pioneers, beginning work on his remarkable machine in the late 1870s. It was patented in 1880 and was first manufactured in 1885.

    The Hammond typewriter has a truly brilliant mechanical design and great looks too. Encased in Mahogany and with solid ebony keys, it is of the highest quality.

    Instead of using typebars, a split type-shuttle with hardened rubber characters (see detail below) rotates each way into position as the keys are pushed. Then a spring-loaded hammer swings from behind the carriage, striking the paper and ribbon against the type-shuttle to print. The constant force of the hammer gives an even impression to each character typed, regardless of how soft or hard the keys are pushed.
