I was going to grab that but I've tested my wife's patience enough this month, between the Mark-8 boards and this teletype I have.  I would like to one day have a good example of a 1973 or earlier glass terminal just to show people the alternative to the TVT I'm building.

Subject: One last epay for the day, TEC terminal

Since some need to possibly use current loop, I was searching and thought it useful to bring this to people's attention.  The TEC is also one of the terminals in the video I posted a few days ago related to "Jobs" if you care to look.  I've used these and at the time the only problem I had was dropping them on your foot, they are not light.

the vendor says that Bitsavers has the manual, which may make this a bit attractive as well, saving looking all over the place for documentation.  The screen doesn't look great, but might be usable w/o a huge amount of work.

Another thing that ones here may be able to use is that it has the video output option installed, so one could drive a modern monitor, or presentation projector in a display situation with this one.

I think the ones we had were a bit fancier, and had a block of indicators on one side or the other that you could blink, this one does not.


no affiliation, just wish I had room for it, hope someone can use it.

i'll throttle myself for a few days unless I see a random 360/50 or so for sale so I am not bothering those who don't like these. Apologies in advance.
