I have designed and built this replica typewriter, that has a working hand cranked mechanism. I originally developed the idea whilst I was on the Legomasters TV show in the UK. Since then I have continued to refine the design, making a hand cranked mechanism instead of a power functions motor that I had originally fitted. I have also had the keys printed up with letters. I believe this would make a fun and unique lego ideas project. I think it showcases the versatility of the Lego brick, and would look amazing on any Lego fans desk, at home or even in the office at work!
I hope to add more updates, showing my ideas for the packaging and giving details on how I developed the working mechanism.
I'm dedicating the idea to my wife Rachael, who is my best friend and an amazing support to me, she always believes in me and is an amazing encouragement to me in everything I do. I would love to be able to walk in to a Lego shop with Rachael and my children Daisy and Obby, and see my design on the shelves :-)
