1972 Brother Webster XL-747 Serial # G2361317 1972 Brother Webster XL-747 typewriter, Serial # G2361317 Benjamin Esh's 1972 Brother Webster XL-747 typewriter. 2024-05-20 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Benjamin Esh: 1972 Brother Webster XL-747 Serial # G2361317 This is my second Brother Webster XL-747. I enjoy writing and fixing these brother machines. This machine wasn't in bad shape when I bought it. The escapement pinion wheel needed a drop of oil, probably due to many years of not being used, but that's about it other than a thorough cleaning (which is par for the course with these machines).

I like that it has the build quality of the Brother Deluxe with the added tab and repeat spacer features.

I'm a software engineer in the Chicagoland area. I've been collecting "vintage" vinyl, computers, mechanical keyboards and typewriters since I was a kid. Born into an analog world, but grew up in a digital one.

My wife is a writer and I enjoy problem solving and puzzles, so naturally fixing I fell in love with fixing and maintaining typewriters and she then gets to enjoy all of these machines!
