    I can't comment on the Compaq, but I can confirm that the Texelec pads work 
on the Tandy 6000.  A few of the pads were a little misshapen, but could be 
massaged into shape.  The foil should be flat, but a little convex is okay. 
Most of the Texelec pads had a slight dome to them, but they work.
