Oh, I'm glad you got one of these. They are stylish!
Very nice looking typewriter and very detailed review. I need to look for one of these. My J4 is a really nice typeweriter, the J5s nothing to brag about, but they look neat.
I always figured the J4 and J5 were essentially the same machine inside, I don't recall my J4 being much better to use than the J5.
After reading your review and seeing the pics I WANT ONE! :)
It's hard not to want one after reading your wonderful review. I can't help wondering though, why isn't it going to become one of the go-to machines?
So far my impression has been that it's too snappy for my taste, and therefore not a truly comfortable writing machine.
