How do old-fashioned mechanical typewriters work

A mechanical typewriter for your creativity

A mechanical typewriter is a highly complex device and, at the time of its invention, a masterpiece of craftsmanship. If you consider that, old typewriters are now more of a work of art than an object of daily use and can decoratively give a room a special nostalgic touch.
