I have a slightly damaged EECO reader with take-up reels.  
The damage is one of the spring arms
is snapped.  It could be repaired fairly easily, or used 
without the reels.  it has a 12-V parallel
interface, apparently called RS-408.  It is from an 
Allen-Bradley CNC control computer.
I could let it go for $50 plus shipping.  it is a fairly 
large rack-mount unit.
