        Mike,

        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...
