The 29 is a great programmer. Used them at many jobs in the 80s. I don't remember
the adaptor model numbers, but the 29 could program just about anything with the

You got yourself a good piece of equipment.

If I'm reading things right, I have the right adapters to do 2764s and
the like. I'm anxious to see if I can program a TurboROM or a KayPLUS ROM
for my Kaypro 10. :-)
