Printers have been moved to their own categories, Apple II specific interface cards and cables will still be here.
Most Apple II’s used Dot Matrix printers such as the ImageWriter series (serial) or Epson FX and MX series or others (parallel). An interface card and cable are required, either serial, or parallel. The Apple IIGS can use a parallel printer (with card and cable), but has a built-in printer port for serial printers, such as the ImageWriter series. It can also use some LaserWriter printers, and even some of the early InkJet printers such as the HP DeskWriter series as long as you can find the “drivers”.
Allows you to add a Printer or a Modem to your Apple II
1981 Apple Super Serial Card II
670-0020- (Rev. C on card pictured). 820-0046-D
Used in the Apple ][, ][+, and //e computers with an RS-232-C serial interface. Popular uses for this card are connecting an ImageWriter or ImageWriter II printer or modems, terminals, and other devices. Can be used in the IIGS, but that has serial ports built in. This card would also be used for networking with printers or other Apple II and Macintosh computers.
Available manuals are the Apple II Super Serial Card User's Manual (1985) and the (1981) Apple II Super Serial Card Installation and Operating Manual.
Previous collector removed the short card interface cable from the card for easier storage, I may run across them yet...If you are replacing an existing Super Serial Card, you won't need the cable. Available with and without the card to port interface cable. The card interface cable goes from the card (10 pin plug) to the back of the computer where it fastens into one of the openings, becoming a 25 pin port for the printer/modem cable to plug into.
You will need an additional cable (not included) to go from the back of the computer to your particular device - a printer, modem or other serial device.
Note: Item pictured is representative, the actual item you receive may be a different revision or serial number or even have different colored dip switch blocks..
For Apple II
Not all printer cards will print graphics, but this one does! Apricorn parallel printer card for the Apple ][, ][+, //e and IIGS. Lets you use popular non-Apple printers with your Apple II computer. Manual is available.
I don't have the cable for the card, so it is untested and Sold as-is.
Use printers other than ImageWriters
Epson parallel printer interface card for the Apple ][, ][ plus, //e and IIGS. This card will allow you to use parallel printers such as the Epson MX-80 with your Apple II.
Card cable connector is 16 pins. The cables typically passed through the Apple II case from the card directly to the printer. Cable (not included) would be a 16 pin to a Centronics 36 (CN36). Such as this one.
For your Apple II
The Grappler + is one of the most popular and well known parallel printer interface card for the Apple II series. It prints text as well as HIRES graphics. It can be used to allow most Centronics parallel printers to work with the Apple ][, ][ plus, //e and IIGS.
I have long and short versions of this card.
Available as card only, card with genuine Grappler cable, and card with generic cable. Cables go from the card through the back of the Apple II to the Centronics port on the printer.
For Dot Matrix continuous paper printers
Add legs to your printer with this adjustable width stand. Most commonly used with dot matrix or continuous feed printers. Lets you stack your paper underneath the printer, thus separating it from the printed paper coming out.
All stands are from a variety of manufacturers and look slightly different. ***Box photo is now for illustration only***. Available now are a couple of used sets where one of the bottom rails has been cracked and glued (one has had four holes drilled in each stand for mounting). Does not affect functionality. Also available is a larger set (16" long instead of 12") that sits flat instead of angled but has three height position inserts to adjust the angle.
All are sold as a set of two (pair).
