Nascom - IMP Printer

Description

Nascom produced a very early dot matrix printer.  For the time it was a cheap and reliable solution to obtaining hard copy.  It had two odd features.  The first being that the IMP electronics look very similar to the Nascom 1 design without the video section.  The second was the odd bidirectional printing.  Basically it was impossible to align the print head position switches accurately which gave a nice wavy left hand column.  This could be seen often in magazine listings of the time.
