1991 Sharp PA-3140 II Serial # 18052171 K 1991 Sharp PA-3140 II typewriter, Serial # 18052171 K Erik Bruchez's 1991 Sharp PA-3140 II typewriter. 2022-10-05 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Erik Bruchez: 1991 Sharp PA-3140 II Serial # 18052171 K First PA-3140II on TWDB. This is my first, and only, electronic (except for IBM electronics, including the IBM Memory Typewriter, IBM Mag Card/A, and Electronic Typewriter 75). It came with a batch of other machines and I thought it could be fun to play with it.

The feel, as a typewriter, without using the memory, is not very good, due to the latency between a keypress and the paper.

Also came with the manual and lift tapes.

The machine requires plugging in and doesn't work with batteries. The power cord can be folded into a compartment in the back. The machine has a removable plastic cover over the keyboard, and a built-in handle to transport it easily.

I started collecting my first pre-WW2 standard typewriters in 2017. Since then I have added a few machines to my collection, which now ranges from the 1890s to the 1980s. As of 2020, I have more big standard (desktop) typewriters than portables, and a few standard electrics.
