I had a 133 column line printer, and an 80 column Data Printer, Data 
products interfaces.  Both drums.  They could both move 3 x 5 cards at 
10000+ lines / min when printing < 20 columns.  They were variable 
speed, so when something fired on the first 20 columns, such as for 
addressing, the thing move like lighting.

Very nice printers.  wish I could have held onto them, but they were 
sold for good $$.

the 80 column one probably printed some junk mail for you, was bought by 
a labeling company for a mass mailer of technical journals here in 
Orange Country.
