Can I fantasize?

I'm reading some literature on IBM accounting machines and finding them
incredibly sexy. It would be a blast to actually program one and run
calculations through it.

So I'd love to someday get my hands on a 402, 407, etc. I'm also now more
interested than ever in getting more unit record equipment. I've got a
557 interpreter and an 026 punch. It'd be nice to have a sorter (082) but
what I'd really like is some sort of accounting machine or even a
calculator (fat chance of that).

So, that being said, if anyone every comes across anything like this, I'm
buying :)

Worst case, I'll build some punch card equipment from scratch. That would
be even more fun.
