The Typewriter Database 1978 IBM 60 Serial # 29-6713-11-0059706 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Clark Hinson: 1978 IBM 60 Serial # 29-6713-11-0059706 This is an Electronic Model 60 that was brought in for repair. Parts are no longer available anywhere, so I had to make the escapement pulleys to replace the ones that were cracked in the power module.

The machine is extremely loud due to it's design (the print shaft and all the parts in the carrier move even when backspacing or spacing).

It has 10 memory storage locations with a total memory capacity of 736 characters.

I love mechanical things and have tinkered with manual and electric typewriters since my teens. I have always been fascinated by the IBM Selectric, but it was later in life that I finally got my hands on one to explore. I learned to repair/restore them and suddenly I have several of them. I don't really consider myself a collector, but rather a restorer. I enjoy bringing old machines back to usable condition and then pass them on to other people to use and enjoy.
