I posted this in the Boat Motor Section as well as I am not sure where Is the best forum.


Anyone know a good source for a "mil" typewriter, that is the military typewriter used by radio operators? It is not just an old typewriter used by the military. A "mil" had capital letters only and was used for copying radio messages.  I was in the Army Security Agency in the 60's and used one daily. I posted here as I also have a Collins R391 boat motor that is being restored and need a mil to round out my military man cave, and for cw copying as well!

Same here.....54-56.  I'm not sure if KYR quoted me on the other post but our mils used tractor feed for the 5-layer carbon copy continuous feed paper. 

If you find one, it will be a miracle!  You're talking OLD!!

Just as a matter of curiosity, I was in the ASA from 63 to 67 and stationed at the 14th ASAFS Hakata Japan. I was an 05D, but remember mils very well.
