  1. Cute machine! 1985 seems to have been a significant year for wedges big and small.

    1. yes, it seems like 1982-1986 were a time of rapid technological change in the typewriter industry – the whole concept of adding I/O ports to typewriters to allow them to act as printers seems to have only lasted 3 or 4 years, with 1983 and 84 being the years they slapped an I/O port on anything that typed, then by 85 they’d figured out that the added expense wasn’t getting back any market share from computers, and the practice basically was over by 1987, with I/O ports only added as an extra on the most professional wedges. Print head technology seems to have advanced like lightning in that same period as well.

  2. Wow, nice machine. Perhaps I’m giving away my age, but I kinda like this one’s style. Well done!
