   Hazeltines were notorious for power supply failures.  The ones I had 
used under-specd electrolytic capacitors in the power supplies.

   Speaking of which...I'm looking for any and all Hazeltine terminals, 
specifically a 1420 or 1500, and an Esprit.  I'm also looking to pick 
up an Altos MP/M system along the lines of a 5-15AD or similar.  
Anybody gots? 8-)
