That reader teams up with Friden's "standard" Flexowriter, though they got used for lots of other applications. They even had a dual-read unit with a ganged clutch. The idea being you put your canned form letter on reader A and the reader B contains the names/addresses of your customers. 

I've got a dual-head unit here that was modified for use in color photography post-processing but the cable was cut off flush. One head was chrominance and the other luminance. -C
