Parts for IBM 5103 printer/ Epson MX-80 F/T tractor feed


Jun 30, 2006
I recently acquired an IBM 5103 dot matrix printer that needs some miscellaneous small parts. I am looking for either a parts machine, a complete printer, or the specific parts I need (whichever way works). These came out in 1975, so the pickings are slim as far as parts go. If you have anything like what I need, or a good lead I would appreciate a message here, or an email at: jwhauck@comcast.net. Any original documentation or tape cartridges for an IBM 5100 system are also wanted.

I am also looking for a tractor feed unit for an Epson MX-80 F/T dot matrix printer or the whole printer. While I am at it, if you have a TEC fB-501 5 1/4" floppy drive floating around let me know. Need the controller board for one of these. All messages or emails will be answered.

Thank you!
