Zichtbare vibrator

Op de Hammond 2 moest je de typependel met de wijsvinger naar beneden duwen, om te zien wat je had getypt. Dat was heel wat handiger dan de machines met typearmen, waarvan je de volledige slede moest omklappen. Maar die benen vanaf 1895 bij met de Underwood en zijn 'visible writing'.

Hammond reageert pas tien jaar later met dit model 12. Hierop zit een 'vibrator', die het lint omlaag schuift na het typen van een letter.

Helaas kan ook de 12 het probleem niet oplossen dat onlosmakelijk met het concept zelf verbonden is: er is geen vrije papierdoorgang doordat de hamer achteraan zit. In alle Hammonds moet je daarom eerst het vel in de metalen cilinder rollen, waaruit het al typend tevoorschijn komt.

De Hammond Multiplex

Visible vibrator

On the Hammond 2, the type shuttle had to be pressed down with the index finger to see what had been typed. This is much handier than machines with type bars of which you have to swing the whole carriage back. However, from 1895 these catch up with the Underwood and its 'visible writing'.

Hammond only reacts ten years later with this model 12. This has a 'vibrator' that pushes the ribbon down after typing a letter.

Sadly, the 12 cannot solve the problem either as it is inextricably connected to the concept itself: the hammer is positioned at the back, so no free passage of paper. For this reason, as with all Hammonds, the paper has to be rolled into the metal cylinder first from where it appears during typing.
