    Default WTB: Punch Card Reader (Documation, IBM, etc.)

    Looking for a card reader to accompany my 129 keypunch. Ideally one of the documation ones since they're smaller, send me a PM or post below if you have one you want to sell. Thanks

    Sorry, new user here, in Los Angeles area, although in the Bay Area (CA) for a few months out of the year. Yeah, local pickup would be best here - I don't feel like paying more for shipping than the item's worth.

    In los angeles & bay area (split my time between the two). Looking for local pickup since shipping will be prohibitively expensive.

    The last time I was able to find a Documation reader for sale it was a bulk lot (and I recall I shipped one to g4ugm, actually) in the bay area, though that was five or six years ago. You might have to broaden out and see if there's a bulk lot and then hope you can sell off the extras you don't need like I did.

    I'm trying to remember the freight cost off the top of my head but I think it was $500 from the valley to a dock in Tacoma, WA with five on a pallet.
