The Typewriter Database 198X Sears 161 Serial # 00123786 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Michael Hoehne: 198X Sears 161 Serial # 00123786 Although I’m not a connoisseur of electronic typewriters, I would characterize this one as a well-made basic model---no editing screen, unknown amount of memory, changeable daisywheel typefaces. This was made in Japan by an unspecified company and carries Sears’ “Listing Number” of AX-80 and Model Number of 161. 53309850.

While I find all of mankind's inventions interesting, I am most enchanted by the human-scale arts and devices, the ones that can be created (and repaired) in a home workshop or studio; the ones that can be understood by looking at them; the ones that do something useful or stir admiration. Typewriters work for me.
