I found a HP-46 today



#2

It comes with the original manual, copyright 1973. It has the optional LED display and it still works perfectly. It's missing the carrying case though. This thing really is built like a tank. What a blast from the past. It reminds me of the old mechanical adding machines at the repair shop I used to deliver for in 1977, except this thing is a scientific calculator. I have no idea where I'm going to put it. Update: the serial number is: 1314A02082

Welcome in the club :-) ... my wife complains nealy every day about "these ugly things" that always seem to be in her way. I have three of them, one with and one without the carrying case, but both of them with the same paper advance problem. Some worn belt or drive roller. So I bought a third one (defective and very cheap) for spares. If only I had the time to look after it.

I had one of them on my office desk for a few days, but I takes up too much space there - it was made in the days when office desks had no computer keyboard, mouse pad and monitor on them. Now I have an old Olympia calculator with nixie tubes there that uses ony half the space of the '46 but attracts even more curious questions frim the colleagues.

Greetings, Max
