Item details

Handmade item

Made to order

DESCRIPTION:
This antique typewriter has been modified to work as a USB Keyboard for PC, Mac, or even iPad! That's right -- its a beautiful and fully functional computer keyboard! You can connect to your favorite computer, smartphone, or tablet using either a wired USB connection, or a wireless Bluetooth connection.

The USB Typewriter can type all letters, numerals, and punctuation marks. It also includes shift, space, and return carriage (which is literally activated by the typewriter's return carriage!). Many non-standard keys, such as F1-F12, Esc, Ctrl, and so on are available with special toggle keys.

The modification is very clean, and leaves the typewriter looking, feeling, and working like a regular typewriter. You can use it as your primary computer keyboard, or turn off your monitor altogether and type on paper while saving your work to the built-in SD Card memory. You can also use it as a convenient keyboard docking station for your iPad or other mobile device. A beautiful, functional, unique addition to your home office.

REMEMBER:
If this item is not your style, you can customize your own typewriter with our Easy-to-install USB Typewriter Conversion Kit.

COMPATIBILITY:
The USB Typewriter works just like any USB Keyboard. There is no special software to install, and the necessary USB cable will be included with your order. It is not only compatible with all desktop and laptop computers, but also the iPad, iPhone, and any other Bluetooth-enabled mobile devices. The new Bluetooth feature means it will work with any Bluetooth-enabled tablet or smartphone. The iPad Pro and other oversized tablets may not fit on the platen, however.

Returns & exchanges

All ready-made USB Typewriters are vintage machines that have been pre-owned. I guarantee that pictures and functional descriptions of the machines are an honest representation of each typewriter being purchased -- however, because of the reclaimed nature of these antique typewriters, it is possible you may not receive the exact typewriter that is pictured in the listing. I offer a 60 day satisfaction guarantee return policy -- during which time you may choose to return the typewriter to me for any reason (If you have requested a custom paint job or engraved message for your typewriter, however, I will not accept returns.). I also offer a 2 year repair/replace policy against breakage due to normal use.

All PCBs and components included in the DIY Conversion Kits are guaranteed against defects. Any obvious flaws in these parts is grounds for a full refund. If you have any problems assembling the kit, I will do my best to guide you through it.

Shipping policies

Unless otherwise requested, all kits and typewriters are shipped FedEx. International orders are shipped with the US Postal Service.

I pack my typewriters extremely well, so you do not have to worry about damage during shipping.

Shipping costs for ready-made or custom-made USB-Typewriters will be layed out in individual item descriptions.

Any customs duties or import taxes levied by non-US countries on US goods are the sole responsibility of the purchaser to pay. If you are concerned about the customs charges your country may require to import goods, please contact me before purchasing and I will help you determine what they may be, if any.

I'm sorry, but I cannot issue refunds for items returned due to non-payment of customs charges.
