I had a 133 column line printer, and an 80 column Data Printer, Data
products interfaces. Both drums. They could both move 3 x 5 cards at
10000+ lines / min when printing < 20 columns. They were variable
speed, so when something fired on the first 20 columns, such as for
addressing, the thing move like lighting.
Very nice printers. wish I could have held onto them, but they were
sold for good $$.
the 80 column one probably printed some junk mail for you, was bought by
a labeling company for a mass mailer of technical journals here in

While falling over Sun and DEC manuals I also found a complete set of
manuals for a great and massive Data Printer Corporation line printer
in four volumes:

Models CT-4964 CT-6644 CT-7484
parts and diagrams
principles of operation
Yours for the postage but I doubt anybody wants them.
