    That's one of the things that I like most about a typewritten page: its texture.

    I've always wondered… why would someone want to type without using the ribbon? What is a stencil used for? That might be an interesting entry.

    Darth Optima–the 5 bank beast. Here at UIUC we've got a prototyping lab with 4 or 5 of those huge rapid prototyping machines. They're awesome.

    I would love to use a mimeograph. I wonder if everything is still available though (stencils, maybe some special kind of ink?)

    The technology really is cool. I'm even more impressed by the 3D scanners than by the 3D printers. These devices will eventually make it very easy to get replacement typewriter parts, among many other things.

    Man…that is one absolutely beautiful Optima! I clicked on this thinking you have been making replacement typewriter parts using a 3D Printer…but I was not at all disappointed by the wit of the actual post. Well done!

    Hmmm… how quaint. ( :
    One thing for sure, that's one handsome Optima.

    yes, I think there's one outfit left who sells supplies. I gave all my mimeographs to Goodwill.

    I like to use heavy paper with my Royal 10 (elite typeface) just to get that 3D effect – kind of like the results from a hand printing press. Even cooler, until I replaced the rock-hard platen, the center of the lower case "o's" would just fall out. Holding the sheet up to a light it would look like a starry sky.

    My Royal 10 does the same thing!
