1996 Swintec 8014-8 Serial # S61312432 1996 Swintec 8014-8 typewriter, Serial # S61312432 Ted Munk's 1996 Swintec 8014-8 typewriter. 2022-07-02 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Ted Munk: 1996 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.

I am a scoundrel without a cause, and my swank outshines the sun.

I am a casual Typewriter Hunter residing in the sweltering deserts of Arizona with a wife, three cats and about 50 typewriters. My main hunting ground is thrift stores, and I rarely pay more than $10 for a machine. My collection consists mainly of portables with cases, and they stay in the cases unless I am actively using it (usually more than one at a time). I do, however keep a handful of interesting Selectrics, including a Composer and a couple of large Nakajima Electronics to use as daisywheel printers for my vintage laptop collection.
