Thanks for the Web link and your compliments about Dave's Web page.
I've added the IBM link to "my" PDP-8 Web page. In due course I'll add
your plotter comments here as a description there, with your

rolls for my plotter; I presume MARCH would like a few. I'd be glad to
pay shipping for some rolls and pass a few along to MARCH. I'll
contact you privately to discuss terms.

me. Let me know if there are any photos I need to take of *my*

I'll photograph it while in process.
Hmmm...this bit of work may evolve into a permanent Calcomp plotter
Web page on my (retrotechnology.com) Web site. Ultimately I presume
MARCH will have their own PDP-8 Web page with other bits like the
plotter, TTY, any papertape reader MARCH comes up with).
