While I find all of mankind's inventions interesting, I am most enchanted by the human-scale arts and devices, the ones that can be created (and repaired) in a home workshop or studio; the ones that can be understood by looking at them; the ones that do something useful or stir admiration. Typewriters work for me.

This is a very different Spool mounting arrangement from the other No. 3 I am listing here. There are many differences, but, after all, they are six years and almost a quarter million serial numbers apart.

This is a very stiff, strong card holder and is is associated with a complicated mounting and a couple of rollers.
