Reactivating the Activator

Brother Activator 850TR
Reactivating the Activator

If this wasn't intended as a gift (and if my wife didn't object) I might keep it. No, they're not fancy or elegant, nor do they exude solidity, but they simply work well. Exemplars of practicality. I hope its recipient enjoys it.

Errata on that last paragraph, the Webster model number has the “XL” part before the “747” while the Activator has its two-letter initial after the number field. What I was trying to say was there’s a similarity in these model names, and I wonder how many other Brothers had similar nomenclature.

Good question on your comment about similar Brothers. A good question for the Right Reverend Ted.

I passed on many Brothers during my collecting. Then I got one, and I liked it. I've gotten several more. They all seem to just plain work. Nothing fancy. Not the best touch action. They get the job done.

I really enjoy my Brother Opus 888. Until I received it, I hadn't noticed that it has French accents and characters. However, it lacks is a way to create an acute accent over a capital "E." Standard QWERTY keyboard except that the slash is where the "1" would be at upper left, so my muscle memory often types that by mistake when I need the numeral — which the 888 lacks, so it's lowercase "L." The capital-and-lowercase alignment is off a bit and even was slightly so in the QC page a factory tech included with the machine. No ransom notes with this typewriter!
