I've got two of these, one in case the other breaks (hah! yeah, right).
Excellent printers.

As Dave said, you can still get ribbons for most of these things. I bought
two 6-pack boxes of Nu-Kote ribbons for my old TTX daisy wheel printer a
year or so ago, probably a lifetime supply unless I start running some sort
of business form on them. Along those lines, I'm still running an old HP
LaserJet 4 as my main printer here, I've tried to replace it 3 or 4 times,
and all of its would-be replacements have died. I finally had Ian go
through it, apparently all of the roller assemblies and everything are not
only available, but pretty cheap!

Surprisingly, a bunch of telecom providers still have these in stock. Until
recently, Vnetek (the folks that, eventually, ended up with DEC's small
networks stuff) still carried the 100-pack under the original DEC part
number. I threw some in on the last order from Vnetek, apparently that was
the last of their MMJ connectors.
