I believe it's discussed in more detail in the video, but the 1532 =
Teletype model 35. The teletypes need lubrication and standard maintenance
but otherwise they are in nice shape and should be able to restore. We
also have boxes of parts. I checked out all of the 1532's on site. Some
are even nicer than the one we have in the museum.
