Brother WP-1700 MDS Word Processor Electric Typewriter.


Very clean. Looks great. Works, but needs a tuneup. Sold AS IS.


This is been in storage for over 25 years probably much longer. For a while, it was at my father's TV repair shop. It's now been in my basement for over 10 years. I just cleaned it up and gave it a test. All electronics seem to be working just fine. With exception on one concer, it also types great using included ribbon.


There is an issue I found. I'm guessing one of the rollers inside is a little flat on one side from being in same position so long. It sticks sometimes when feeding. I have to manually nudge it to unstick it. I can't guarantee this, but it appears to be getting better with use. If you look at my poor typing in my photos, you can tell it stuck a few times as after a few lines it would stick and I would have to manually nudge it with hand roller knob on left side.


I suggest getting it checked out (tuned) or perhaps replacing some of the small rollers that feed/turn the main roller.


Other than that it, everything appears to be working great. I did not test 3.5in drive. I have no reason to believe it has any issues.


Also, there is a small defect in the plastic on the left side of the machine. I included a photo. You barely notice it, and it doesn't affect its condition.


Ready to sell. That said, I am selling this AS-IS. If you have any concerns, I really suggest, please do not buy. This may not be the right typewriter for you. I am fully disclosing everything I know.


Free shipping is included in to price. I always pack with extra care, and I'll try to get it shipped within 3 days.


Again, as always, please contact me... before you offer... if you have any questions.
