Mignon combined the simplicity of more primitive index machines with the robustness of a well-built office machine. In fact, it was a real alternative to the much more expensive keyboard machines in offices in the early 20th century. And thanks to its interchangeable type covers, the machine was an extremely practical tool for jobs requiring the use of different fonts. Its only competition was the much more expensive Hammond typewriter.



This typewriter is called an index typewriter and therefore the operation and appearance of this machine is quite different from the typewriters we typically think of. The user of this machine moves a pen-type indicator needle to the desired character; This is connected by a series of gears and linkages to the type cylinder that rotates as you move the pen. When you move the pen over the character you want, you press the print key/button firmly and the type roller presses it down along the strip and onto the paper. You can then press the spacebar or continue by moving the pen to the next character and the process continues. The paper is fed exactly like a regular typewriter, but carriage return rotation is a little more complicated.
