Revision as of 17:46, 4 March 2010

On December 20, 2009, someone (who?) donated a beautiful HP DraftMaster I pen plotter (HP P/N 7595A).

There's a Flickr set of somebody else's DraftMaster for reference.

Our plotter:

  • appears to be in good physical condition
  • comes with a pen carousel
  • comes with one pen holder (holding a #2 pencil, nach)
  • has a DB-25 that probably wants to speak HP-GL over RS-232

We need:

  • service manuals
  • pen holders
  • paper
  • software that emits HPGL
  • a paper holder (probably a wire cage) to catch the print as it finishes
