Thinking machine

They say they can make machines that can think.

I'd rather have a machine to think with.


  1. Yes! That other thing makes us rush and revise. The typewriter wants us to slow down... then tap, tap, tap, a thought emerges.

  2. Funny coincidence: Just 2 days ago I bought this exact make & model (Royal KHM) at an antique mall! It's one of the best typers in my ever-growing collection, with a very smooth action.

    Would you please enlighten me about the numbers on the side panel? It looks like some sort of typing action adjustment, but I don't see how it works with no visible lever.

    1. Congratulations, Cam. I am very happy with mine (found on the floor of an antique mall in December). The panel indicates key tension, which is adjusted with a wheel on the bottom of the typewriter, as on older models.
