Interesting shape to that return lever, eh?

I finally got a Speedline!

I can straighten the key labels by supporting the keytop underneath and twisting the top with a fingertip. Tedious, but it works.

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.
