Hi

I'm a bit of a garden shed inventor, and I need a really old NEC spinwriter printer (they were current in the 1980s!) to strip the mechanical parts off.

Does anyone have one (working or not), or know where I might get one from please?

My God, you're trying to revive a Daisywheel printer -- what is this madness ?

No - I'm not trying to revive one, I want to take all the mechanical bits and motors off one to make a DIY CNC machine.

2010- March 4
Yesterday, I opened an old box and found a vinyl case holding 6 pristine NEC font wheels. Not the flat daisywheel but the thimble style approx 2" diameter. Chances are pretty good that I may have a working printer somewhere in storage that would utilize these supplies. Not certain whether that is a "SpinWriter" though.

You still needing that equipment?

Hi Buddy. Thanks for your note. I suppose that I should have mentioned that I'm in the UK, so whilst I would love any old printers that you may find out, the shipping costs to the UK would probably be too expensive.
Thanks anyway.

Are you still looking for an e.l.f. Spinwriter? I have one, not used in years, but replaced because of obsolescence, and, as far as I know, in working order.

Yes augenph, I can always use the bits of a spinwriter.
Where in the world are you?
