Trade List

 

Items Wanted

Here is an incomplete list of things I am looking for, in no particular order.

  • 8-level Teletype BRPE punch for 1 inch wide paper tape, with a chad-making punch so I can use the tapes it punches in optical readers.
  • Aluminized printer paper for my Racal MA-4233 printer. Referred to as “electrosensitive paper” or “metal paper”, I believe. It uses 60mm wide rolls of approximately 42µm thick paper on a plastic core of around 12mm diameter (though the core isn’t critical in this printer), with a very thin aluminum coating over a dark paper substrate. While exact drop-in rolls would be great, I’d consider any wider size which I might be able to cut down, as well as large rolls or sheets of this kind of paper for use in my AN/TXC-1 facsimile machine.
