Orga

This Orga is an ebay find. Despite the serial number (N 52530) most certainly not as many machines were made. This really ought to be N 2530.

The layout, with the "pseudo-keyboard", carriage at the top, and left-right handles for the carriage at the lower left, is unique, and easy to use. In addition, the machine works very lightly. The only disadvantage, which you quickly get used to, is that the keyboard needs to be released manually after finishing a calculation, by pressing the button next to the main crank, much like it is the case in the Brunsviga machines with fixed setting levers. Taking all of this, including the lightness and ease of use of the machine into account, it is a shame that it was not more succesful.
