Abstract

The position of typebars 10a and 10b in type basket 11 is effectively interchanged without changing the position of their corresponding keybuttons 12 and 13 through the use of crossover bails 14 and 15. Depression of keybutton 12 pivots bail 14 to drive auxiliary keylever 16 downwardly and actuate typebar 10a through trip lug 17. Similarly, depression of keybutton 13 pivots bail 15 to drive auxiliary keylever 18 downwardly and operate typebar 10b through trip lug 19. In this manner, underscore typebar 10b can be located in the center of type basket 11 to obtain the best possible alignment for a single or continuous underscore.
