Well, as it happens, I got an HP2748B for *free* the other day. And,
it included an extra read-head unit with an 8/6 track switch.
Oh, and an HP 2100S, too!

I'm tempted to wire mine up to a more modern computer (hardly
dare say "PC" :) and read paper tapes with it. Has anyone
done that sort of thing?
