And as I recall if you really wanted one they were about $1000
surplus.  (I really wanted one.)  The other dream was to find
a way to use a $50 Model 15 (baudot code) in its place.  I
eventually built a "TV-Typewriter" and built my own UART to
make it into a terminal.

I still got my ASR-33 in the loft along with a GE Termiprinter <lollypop
line at once>.
I wanted a tape/unit for the ASR-33 but never got one.
I used lining wallpaper cut to size with hand saw as rolls of paper was
expensive.
I remember buying my first dot matrix printer cost #420.00

and we moan with the cost of a laser printer now #195
by moan my better half Why do you want another printer?

In high school I rigged up a rs232 to 20ma current loop (100v?)
converter and programmed the SOL20 (S100 bus compter with keyboard and
crt driver) to use a kleinshmidt baudot tty as a printer.  (Korean war
surplus, "portable" model with a magnizium cover that could be put on
a back-pack frame.) I hand-assembled the program and typed it in in
hex, and couldn't print anything until it was working.

       Neat! The first dot matrix printers I saw were the Extel printers that
the wire services were putting in to replace the Teletype model 15
printers in the early 1970's. The first inkjet printer I saw was an
Olivetti in maybe the early 1980's or so. It looked like it had one ink
nozzle. The print head zipped back and forth across the page real fast
drawing little dots. Sometimes they lined up to form characters.
Actually, it did work pretty well, but the print was pretty light.
