    Default UCC 1035 Terminal?

    Came across this old fella in my uncle's basement. It says "UCC 1035 Terminal - University Computing Company" across the front. I remember him telling me that it had some computing abilities beyond just being a typewriter. Anyone know anything else more about them? Or their potential value?

    Thanks!

    It looks like an IBM golfball console printer so has no compute power on its own. The are reasonably rare, but I wouldn't say valuable. Most folks don't have the space. It will be gummed up and need a service. If you have an APL golfball (it appears to have APL symbols stuck on the key fronts) it might be worth more. Some one was asking about on the green keys list .....

    Yeah, not trying to assume that you are currently interested in selling but if that is true I'd be more than interested (And I'm not too far away!) Both me and a friend on the coast have been looking for one for a number of years. I'll mention this thread to him.

    Thanks for the info. I was shocked at how heavy it was when I tried to move it. Definitely a beast to store. I'm going to test it out later today and how it's doing.
