I saw a mention of the laserwriters by Roger Holmes in his posting, and
remembered I have some to get rid of as well. I have them in Anaheim,
Ca. They are free take if you pick them up.
Probably no interest for the same reason he chucked his (size and ozone)
but better to ask before the act.
I originally planned to use them with older sun systems, since they could
substitute for the Sun laserwriters, but since have gone to the freebie
ghostscript stack to print what .ps files I need.
The larger sun laserwriters were fast and clean, but not for the
faint hearted to set up. The apple writers matched the lower end
ones with the movement similar to the HP laserwriter 2's.
I'm also inclined to chuck the Laserwriter 2 I have, if there is
interest in that.
The Apple laserwriters are untested. The Laserwriter moves
paper, but is in need of attention to work.
