I have all the old original documentation, schematics and service information on the 024/026/029 keypunches as well as the 1402 and 1403 series equipment...

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.
