      Neat machines...used a few of them back in the day when the elementary school I attended had a few.
      What is the printer connection like on the back of the 128?  Do you have a cable that will go from that to a DB9 or 25?  For adtpro, all you really need is something to go from the port on the 128 to the serial port on the PC and (as I recall) do a null modem switcheroo on the wires in the process...a specific cable isn't required.  When I worked with it, my pile o' stuff included a printer cable which I was able to adapt through whatever means to get it to the PC's serial port.

      I bought a Laser 128 on ebay last year. It had a bad floppy drive. I bought an external drive and swapped the mechanisms. But, now I can’t find my Apple ][ disks.
      Is there anyone near to Keansburg, NJ who has an Apple ][ set up that I could come by with some blank disks and get copies of Apple ][ DOs 3.3 and Pro-DOS so I can test this system?
      Or, I can reimburse for the cost of disks and postage if someone could make copies and send them to me.
      I bought an ADTPro cable, but can’t locate that either.
