I have for sale a really nice HP pen plotter that will print with ink pens on real drafting velum or drafting film. It will print on paper from A size up to 36 x 48 inches which is a little larger then E size. The printer comes with 2 pen holders each capable of holding 8 pens. The liquid ink pen holder can be set for various width pens and the felt tip pen holder can be set for various colors.
 
There is nothing like a nice large locomotive drawing in pen and ink on velum or drafting film. Connect this plotter to your computer using either RS-232 serial or HP-IB parallel. It is a blast to watch this printer work. The paper moves in one plane while the pen moves in the other. A vacuum system keeps the paper flat and accuracy of the plot is .00001", a highly accurate device. They don't make them like this any more.  Use this plotter with Autocad or other CAD programs that support it.
 
I am the original owner and paid close to $18,000.00 for it new from Hewlett Packard many years ago. It has been lightly used and always kept in a nice environment when operating. It is currently in storage and I need to sell it since I no longer need it.
 
Make those big drawings on real velum and make blueprints like the old days, or just use it to make fine art line drawings of your train cars and locomotives.
 
Asking $1500 or best offer. I am motivated and would like this to go to a good home.

You want to borrow it for a while, i need to get out of the storage space. Tired of wasting the money every month.
