1982 IBM Personal Typewriter Serial # 6126 11 0001919 1982 IBM Personal Typewriter typewriter, Serial # 6126 11 0001919 Clark Hinson's 1982 IBM Personal Typewriter typewriter. 2017-08-27 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Clark Hinson: 1982 IBM Personal Typewriter Serial # 6126 11 0001919 Just refurbished. This is a prime example in like-new condition. It was nearly un-used when I got it, but had been stored for many years and had frozen stiff. After a chemical wash to remove all the hardened grease and oil, it was relubricated with synthetic oil and grease to restore that like-new feel. Various upgrades were preformed to make it perform flawlessly for years.

This model was only made for about 2 years, starting in late 1982 and ending in 1984. It has a lot in common with the Selectric II as it uses 88-character elements, but it also has the ribbon design that was introduced on the Selectric III.

This machine was obviously someone's personal machine as the set-up date was Christmas Day 1982.

It has also been repainted in the original colors. This the only color combination these machines came in. There were no optional colors.
This is a 12-cpi, single-pitch machine, as they all were. Dual-pitch or other cpi spacing was not offered on this model.

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.
