The Typewriter Database 2005 Brother SX-4000 Serial # M5P320376 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Ted Munk: 2005 Brother SX-4000 Serial # M5P320376 Found at thrift store and purchased mainly to open it up to look for datestamps. Confirmed: this scalloped light-grey body style is a 21st-century produced Brother product.

There seems to be little difference between this machine and Brother electronic wedges built 20 years previously. This one is a simple non-word-processing typewriter model. Actually quite pleasant to use, and you don't need a user's manual to figure out the functions.

Interestingly, the ribbon and typewheel from the 10-years older WP-5600MDS are an exact match for the ones in this machine. Completely interchangable.

Found datestamps of Dec. 2005 on top shell molding and on back of keyboard assembly, matching perfectly with serial number.

Sold!
