    typewriter…
    (77 items)

    The most distinguishing aspect of the William's design was the articulated movement of the type-bars as they traveled to the platen.

    The type-bars are arranged in two fans on either side of the platen and hop-up and over to the top of the platen when typing. The type-bars, resting on ink pads, were inked when they came back to their starting position, With no ribbon to get between the type-bars and the paper, the printing was very sharp.

    This typewriter proudly offered visible writing, but only one line at a time, as the paper would disappear into a cylinder, as the paper was advanced.

      Hi Mike,
      I love taking early typewriters apart and cleaning them from the inside out. I have spent many hours working on these beautiful typing machines. All of the typewriters in my collection are mechanically perfect, which give me a great sense of pleasure.

      Thank you for noticing and appreciating my efforts.

      Cheers,
      Martin
