I may need help with the 029. It was bought "functional" but the
modules are out of it. Since I have a working 129, I have not gotten
into this one. Anyone with a huge desire for it, we could talk about it.
I'm really looking for / dreading how to get a reliable reader. I have
"gooed" one Documation 200 and have another not powered on by me, and
also an M1000, and would be interested in anyone who has successfully
followed thru on all the discussions about the rollers as to how they
did it and how they are working now.
Please, we all have archives, and know there are huge threads about this
in the list. I'm interested in an update with this query.
