Abstract

A typing work station uses a minimum desk-top space while still having a comparatively large system planar board through suspending a power supply above the planar board. Plug-in cables exit from the side and rear of the machine with minimum distraction. (Image Omitted) A typing work station is reduced in size so that it will easily fit on a typewriter support area of a secretary's desk. A console unit 1 (Fig. 1) of a typing work station includes a bottom pan 2 having a planar board 3 screwed into the bottom pan 2, which is smaller than the typewriter support area. The planar board 3 has a memory thereon utilized with a monitor (not shown) supported on a top cover 4 of the console unit 1 and a keyboard (not shown) next to the console 1 adjacent its front cover 5, which has a snap fit on a front wall 6 of the bottom pan 2.
