RE: [midatlanticretro] Dot Matrix...
I have a total of five dot matrix printers:
3 Apple—Apple Dot Matrix, Imagewriter I (I like this one the best), and an Imagewriter II. I’m having problems with the Imagewriter II, printouts are lighter at the left margin, and get darker towards the middle and right. I was told the platen needed shimmed but I have no clue on how to do this.
1 IBM Proprinter, II or III (small carriage) and a IBM 2390+ they both work perfectly.
I like to use them every now and then, I like the noise the make.

Subject: [midatlanticretro] Dot Matrix...
I was going through my piles of gear, and if there's one thing I do not
need, it's dot matrix printers, and yet they seem to gravitate to me.
Therefore, I am offering FOR FREE to anyone who wants 'em:
A Commodore MPS 801 or 802 printer
Some old Epson printer (I can get the model name tomorrow Am)
A Apple Imagewriter from the days of the IIGS
I probably have piles of paper for the damn things too, somewhere in
the basement... assuming I haven't thrown that away last time I moved.
