Substitute Magnetic Cards for HP-97?


I'm assuming magnetic cards for the HP-67/97 are getting hard to find. I've got only two.

Has anyone tried to cobble together a workable substitute? Say, by sticking a piece of magnetic tape to a strip of to a piece of a playing card? Cutting up subway tickets? Other?


It's not worth the bother, even if possible, as they are still around.


If you haven't already been notified, here is one place that you can get HP magnetic cards. I believe the seller is a frequent poster here, so he might contact you directly.

E-bay auction for 160 cards
...started with a "buy-it-now" price of $20.



I'm not looking for eighty, but it's nice to know they're still available.
