That's one of the PRACTICAL uses of a keyboard
Never mind trying to use a Selectric as a printer, the REAL use of a
Dynatyper or KGS-80 is for copying megabytes of text to exercise a
God, the dynatyper, I remember that...
On a related note, I have an old I/O Selectric, not the generalized
model, but one that appears to have been a teller terminal of some
kind. Perhaps it was even used by a vehicle license branch.
Anyway, I never could get it to function with the IBM controller
that came with it (which I think put out EBCDIC), but it also came
with an aftermarket controller (which I think put out ASCII).
If anyone has been searching high and low for one of these, I'd
probably let go of it for the right price or trade.
Shipping will be a killer, tho; it's very heavy.
