Lets not forget the terminal used a ODD character set. I don't think that
Selectric Ball is easy to come by. Years ago I had the console
typewriter of a IBM1130 hoping to use it as a printer, but I distroyed
it by running open loop rather than closed loop. Very sensitive timing
for CR's and LF's.
And No I don't have it any more, since I moved to many times.
