198X Canon Typestar 6 Serial # G24613837 198X Canon Typestar 6 typewriter, Serial # G24613837 Gary Wann's 198X Canon Typestar 6 typewriter. 2018-12-22 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Gary Wann: 198X Canon Typestar 6 Serial # G24613837 Canon Typestar 6 picked up for next to nothing from an online auction. The ribbons are difficult to come by and are expensive, but this thermal transfer typewriter prints well on cheap thermal fax paper. It's in fairly good condition, a couple of lugs missing off the ribbon cover and the line feed motor seems to struggle if the platen isn't freely moving. I've lightly lubricated the platen bearings with WD40 and made sure the drive cogs are clean.

Very easy to remove the top cover, 2 sunken cross-headed screws and a third one in the battery compartment.

The manual is dated 1984, so the year of manufacture will be post this date.

Retired Air Traffic Controller. Got my first typewriter from Santa when I was about 8 years old and woke my parents up at 3am as I just had to try it out when I woke up! Have had an old Imperial 58 in the family for longer than I can remember. A computer geek, but I just love the mechanics of typewriters and have started to collect a few more to keep the Imperial company!
