My local Goodwill store has a few old printers. I think they have been there for several years.

I gave up finding interesting items at Goodwill years ago, but
yesterday I struck iron. A Data General LDM-800 line printer, which is a
rebadged Mannesman-Tally MT661. 800 lines per minute, line matrix,
cabinet mounted. Plus, yesterday was half-price day and it cost me a
grand total of $5.29, including tax.
I had to modify a power cord because of a silly protuberance in the
socket, but...it works!
There's another one still at the Goodwill store (minus the ribbon
cartridge). Ya never know what you'll find...
