Nice H25 printer on ebay but wonder if the ribbons are available?  Anyone know who made the ‘engine’ for this printer and if ribbons are out there?  A google search didn’t show up much.

 

Not that I need another printer, but this was a pretty nice one in its day, see:

https://heathkit.garlanger.com/catalogs/1982/Heathkit_Catalog_857.pdf   p. 37

back then the assembled version of this, with stand, would have set you back $1,700!

 

the seller (https://www.ebay.com/usr/quizzlyly/)  has some Heathkit manuals out there.  A tantalizing pile of H8 boards are visible in the background of the printer picture, but apparently not for sale 😊 at least not yet…

You can still buy the same printer ribbon from the Epson printers in Amazon for different sizes to restore it. Then carefully open the H25 printer ribbon case and replaced it with the Epson ribbon.

Heath Company designed and built the H25 printer in the kit.

I owned one of those babies - fast and noisy!! Built one of the proof kits.  I don't think they used an 'engine' - all Heathkit parts inside.  I am pretty sure the ribbon was a standard off-the-shelf.
