Element 11 is pivotally mounted by pin 14. Pivot pins 13 and 14 are offset with respect to each other so that any character on either print element can be positioned in operative printing relation at a printing station adjacent print hammer 15. The respective paths of movement of elements 10 and 11 are designated by the broken lines 16 and 17.
