And I was already salivating for the 600 lines/minute HP2608 that was part of the HP 3000 system since I have the interface card for it. Looks like it went to a lucky someone else...

I just resurrected a nice HP 2631G dot matrix line printer: 
Like here:
Very nice printer, I'm jealous. However, I do have an HP 2610A that will get restored/running at some point. That thing shakes the house and walks across the floor (used one in high school).

It has 3 empty slots for extra character ROMs, so I am itching to install some... Anyone has ever made a dump of these character ROMs? 
Would be surprised - given HP/DSD at the time - if there wasn't an APL character set :)
