Looking for a printer

Post by Bill H » Sun Apr 15, 2018 1:37 pm

Looking for a working printer with a roll of paper for the ZX81 to complete my setup. Prefer a ZX81 branded one if possible - anyone have an extra for sale?

The ZX81 printer that works decade after decade is Alphacom 32 (or in the US: Times Sinclair 2040).

There are 5 on sale on eBay.

Also paper is readily available for the Alphacom which is something to bear in mind if you want to actually use the printer rather than have it as a display item.

I have a non-working ZX Printer for display, and an Alphacom 32 for printing.
