The Typewriter Database 1895 Yost 4 Serial # 44497 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Guillermo Fernandez Boan: 1895 Yost 4 Serial # 44497 This beauty is complete, with her decals and ornaments in place, and fully operative.
There is a problem (my problem) concerning the way of properly replenish the ink in the inking pad where the types rest until the corresponding key is pressed down (what happens after this, ressembles a dance: the typebar moves back until is under a hole in the middle. Then raises and the letter surpasses the hole, kisses the platen and print the paper positioned on it).
I put a typeface specimen sample of every letter and sign. Is obvious the inking was feeble (should I use a mop?).
Anyway, one of my best typewriters, without any doubt.
Enjoy the pictures.
