I'm the Service Manager at the above referenced company. We primarily repair surveying instruments and becuase the HP-41 was widely used in the surveying industry we get involved in a few repairs.
As mentioned, I had two of the N-75 NiCad sets in stock. I had ordered these a couple of years ago when my supplier told me they could no longer get them and these were all that they had left. I picked the $20 price out of thin air, if it is out of line let me know and we'll change accordingly. Since we can't find them in inventory, I just need to get close and cover the cost of paperwork and such.
Rhonda, the lady that Roy spoke to, has already recieved two calls on the batteries so I'm not sure that we still have them available. We are going to ask our battery suppliers if they can track down replacements, however, based on the comments in this thread I don't think we'll have much success either.
If you'd like to inquire, feel free to call us and talk to Rhonda or email me and we'll keep you updated as to what we can find.
FWIW, our page is at http://www.holmansnv.com/ However, I'm afraid there isn't much info there.
PS - since I'm posting here, can anyone reccomend someone to repair a keypad on a HP-41? I've got one with some 'soft' keys, the metal contact below the key has lost it's spring and isn't always successfully contacting. Someone has attempted to repair the thing before with limited success and I'd like to get it done right for my client. If nothing else, are the places suggested elsewhere at this site for repair worth trying?
Thanks for the interest
