Back in the 1980s, I spent way too many hours
writing programs in HP-Basic for data acquisision
and analysis, more than I care to remember.

I still have an HP-85, which still works except
for the tape drive, which is in need of a new
capstan pinch-roller.

Anyone know where to get replacement parts for
this machine?
