After a very long search I found a Commodore MPS 1270A inkjet printer, but to get the deal closed took about 3 months before the seller would accept a deal. It was marketed as NEW IN BOX however once I opened it and could smell smoke and found ink all over the printer it was clear what one person thinks is NIB is not always the case. However, it was complete, working and with some quick cleaning turned out to be in great working shape.
This printer will be used for Print Shop/Print Master calendars along with many other projects on Commodore machines along with Amiga, Mac and many others due to the Centronics interface! Here is a video of it in action and what it looked like before I cleaned it up.

Cool, I had (and still do) an MPS-1000 printer I used with both my 64/128 and Amigas. I need to get it out and get it hooked back up. I have a box of ribbons somewhere also i bought a few years back. Not sure if they are still good but they are all still sealed if they haven’t dried out
There is just something about the sound of dot matrix. I have a client that still uses them to print moving manifest for Allied Van Lines, such a happy sounds to walk in their office to hear that going. The MPS-1000 and 1200 are both still on my one day wish list to complete the MPS collection up. Even if your ribbons were to be a little dry, they are easy to, old school rejuvenate them. 😉
