  1. APL\360 typeball for the IBM 1052 and I/O Selectric

    This is just for a bit of fun, now you can 3D print your own APL\360 typeball ('golfball') for a Selectric, I/O Selectric, 1052 printer-keyboard or IBM 1130:

  3. DEC PDP-11/03 switch paddle, LED receptacle and console board

    I have an MDB Systems workalike LSI-11 backplane which I am starting to get working. I thought it would be nice to build the DBCOK logic and console switches to have the same look and feel as the original PDP-11/03 console so I scripted up the specific DEC switch paddle and LED receptacle as part of the project (which is ongoing) so they can be 3D printed and use a tiny Arduino to do the powerup sequence.

    If you have a PDP-11/03 or a PDP-11/05 with missing or broken switch paddles then ...
  4. IBM System/360 and System/370 console button replica inserts

    In case you need some stopgap inserts in a /360 or /370 console, until you find the originals (which I have found is very difficult).

  5. PTAP2DXF - make paper tapes without a punch

    If you have a paper tape reader and no punch, you can now make real working paper tapes using a normal home stencil-cutting machine.
    I've written a small command line utility that can take a .PTAP (or any other binary or textfile) and generate output that these
    machines will cut. that your reader will read.

    It can easily make repair pieces for existing old broken tapes from any byte offset. In addition it can ...
