The typewriter-friendly couple who sold me the two Brother daisy wheels that prompted my last post, told me they’d long since got rid of the office equipment they once used in their real estate settlement business.

All, that is, except for one Canon AP-6110 electronic typewriter, which they asked me if I was interested in buying …

I had to decline, telling them truthfully I didn’t have room for it alongside my AP-1500—also manufactured in Costa Mesa, California—and now the only Canon wedge I own after I got rid of the yellowing AP-150.

Generously, they invited me in to inspect and photograph the AP-6110 …

… I made sure to record the serial number …

It’s big, with a space as big-as-a-cathedral on the inside …

The AP-1500 takes a large ribbon cassette too, but is much more compact …

The AP-6110 instruction guide is dated: Canon Business Machines Incorporated 1992. Which is about the year I expected, given the lighter key-tops that seem to be a feature of Canon’s last generation of office electronic typewriters.

It’s a full-size machine, too big to be classed as “compact”, but nowhere near as big as mammoth Canon typewriters like the AP-800 …

Now that’s a big Canon!
