seeking IBM 5215 Selectric printer or IBM 5218 Printwheel

Unread postby nigwil » Wed Jun 26, 2013 12:37 am

If anyone has either the IBM 5215 or IBM 5218 printer that was commonly used with the IBM 6580 Displaywriter and would like it to go a new home where it will be operated with a DIsplaywriter, I would be interested in discussing further.

A picture of the IBM 5218 can be seen here:

The IBM 5215 uses a variant of the usual IBM Selectric printer:
