Oooooohhh! What model teletype are you running there, @electriclab? I have a soft spot in my heart for those mechanical monsters, as I maintained many of them for about 20 years. . .
Ksarul, I'm glad I'm not the only one with admiration of these old mechanical beasts I have couple of model 15s that were Associated Press machines that have no keyboard (I'm looking to get rid of them actually, I saved them from scrap years ago) A model 15 KSR that looks like a museum piece, and one each of models 28, 32, 33, 43. As I'm sure you know, The 15 and the 28 machines pre-date ASCII by a few years and use Baudot, and these are the ones I use a Pi to print on.
I think I got the bug when my Dad had an old teletype in his ham shack when I was little, and got on the air with it when RTTY was done with real iron. I just love mechanical things like this and marvel over how complex and ingenious they are. They're terrible things to collect though since they are so heavy and take up space, so I really haven't added to the collection for years. The only one people are interested in is the 33 since a lot of people got their first computer experience by using one. I have no nostalgia for mine, so one of these days I'll try to sell it.
