I call these “Corsair type” because in my experience that is the most common name on them. Anyone have a better idea? Please? Maybe “6Y-type”?

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.
