Hey, Max--welcome to the list!
I suspect that some pretty fertile ground for prospecting might be a used
CNC equipment dealer. Paper tape used to be the lingua franca of the CNC
world and a lot of equipment has been upgraded with solid-state paper tape
For those of you who don't know, Max is the author of some wonderful EDN
articles and a book that should be on everyone's shelf--"Bebop to the
Boolean Boogie: An Unconventional Guide to Electronics Fundamentals,
Components, and Processes". Want to know about Multiwire? It's in
there--as is a whole bunch of other fascinating stuff.
