Re: [midatlanticretro] old star trek ascii art
There is a wide carriage DEC dot-matrix printer at InfoAge. It is probably very close to a DEC writer without the keyboard and it should at least as fast.

I have PC era dot matrix that would work but need to get a DECwriter
or a drum printer to be appropriate for my exhibit and fast enough. I

I also have 5 level teletype art tapes which I need to finish reading in some
