Today we look at an old Olympia typewriter module. Chunky and with great keycaps an interesting switches, this is a pretty nice acquisition. Hope you enjoy the video! :)

I like the sound. Nice and chunky. Seems like the closest thing in feel might be something like Futaba MD? I kinda wished you'd made some more comparisons besides the SKCM one. Though that switch plate DOES look like it was yanked out of some kind of Alps.

Chyros... I wonder which switches do you like better between the:
* Tactile Mitsumi switches in the AEKII, and the
* Tactile SMK switches in your Apple Desktop Bus keyboard ?

Both are relatively rare, and I have no keyboard with either.
