    IBM Lexmark Personal Wheelwriter 2

    I use a typewriter daily for completing miscellaneous forms and documents. I have used an IBM Lexmark for years and when my old reliable stopped working, I contacted and ordered a replacement which was in stock. We received it within a couple of days and returned the non-working unit for reconditioning.
