The Typewriter Database 199x Swintec 8014-8 Serial # S61312432 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Ted Munk: 199x Swintec 8014-8 Serial # S61312432 I guess I have to admit that I bought this because it was super-cheap and worked well, and I was curious what Swintec was making, since Swintec is one of the very few typewriter factories still churning out machines.

Well, this model is well-made, very beefy, and performance-wise about equal with the IBM Wheelwriter. It's a perfectly servicable daisywheel that should satisfy anyone who likes daisywheels.
