We hate 2020!

Just when we thought 2020 couldn't get any worse! We were about to re-open after many months of being closed but then disaster struck when a mains water pipe burst and flooded much of the ground floor of the museum.
Sadly re-opening has now been postponed. Read More >>>

Atari Programmable Printer 1029

Atari Programmable Printer 1029

The Atari 1029 printer was one of Atari's final printers for the XL series computers in 1984.    It was released in very limited quantities through Atari's Ireland headquarters for Europe.    Both 110vac and 220vac versions exist.     The printer mechanicals were design by Seikosha.   In fact, nowhere on the internal boards & mechanicals is the name Atari.   Only the case design, done by Tom Palecki, a former Atari Industrial Designer, was actually Atari.     Seikosha also made Tandy and Commodore versions of its printer as well.

7-pin dot matrix, same as Commodore MPS-801 - Released for Europe & Canada (not USA)

Our printer is complete with the original box and packaging and was kindly donated by Alan Hunter
