McCool Mod. 2 - 1904

The Acme-Keystone Manufacturing Company, with sales offices in Pittsburgh and factory at Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania, had something to do with a typewriter of this name. It was a machine of 319 parts, wrote from a type wheel and was priced at $25 in anticipation of creating popular and broad demand through low price. There was such a typewriter and it was also quite certainly being made ready for the market, but nothing came of the effort. William W. McCool was the inventor.
