New Typewriters?

I’ve been out of the loop for quite a while… Life gets busy. So busy that I don’t even have time to typecast this post. However, my wife shared something she came across and I thought I’d pass it on, though, as I already stated, I’ve been out of the loop for so long that this may come as old news to the rest of you. If so, I apologize for my redundancy.

Here is a link to read about what appears to be new typewriters. I don’t know much about it as I’m sharing this on the run.

The Bates index on the left is the kind of thing one might find on Don Draper’s desk.

Here’s a shot of the bottom of the Autopoint Index.


The opening mechanism of the Autopoint is interesting.
