Data I/O 29B or System 19 with either a UniPak or UniPak II.  They  
handle pretty much any of the old EPROMS from 2708's on up.  For  
simple duplication operations, you can do everything from the control  
panel.  They also have a serial interface for talking to a computer.   
You can usually find them on eBay for short money.
