    I think the "discovery" could well be a whole new typotechnica? genre. Very enjoyable.

    On my Adler Standard, the key action is lighter and snappier when the carriage tension is INCREASED. At high tension, the typebars just want to fly to the printing point. So this may all depend on the particular design of a typewriter. It's an interesting area for further experimentation.

    Surely it must depend on the design of the machine. Though I was at first surprised to hear of the "Adler effect", it actually seems like a more logical effect. I think we need an expert here…

    Look at that type style! xD
    And that huge, square typewriter reminds me of my Olympia SG 3!! xD

    A miserable lot of polytheists many of us are.
