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-)
