And then you have to get the cassette drive and an HP-97, since they take the same battery. Think of all the money you'll save by sharing batteries! ;-)

Oh, those long nights without batteries, trying to recover from a crash... ;)

Ooh, that virus' spread again! Duck and cover!!

Again, Thank you all for the so many suggestions on what we can do with this great machine.
The Clonix NoV sounds very interesting, but I have yet to see how much will it cost as I couldn't find any prices on Diego's site.

Did I mention that the buzzer can make very nice clean sounds?
I wonder why the newest HP Prime was not equipped with similar feature, despite having provision to connect one buzzer on the main PCA.

And time to a partial tear down.
When removing the four rubber feet to undo the four screws, I could confirm its original condition.
The machine was never opened before.

Somehow this half nut version is a little disappointing at the component count.
I guess the ownership satisfaction will be greater on the full nuts Smile

Main active components:
5061-7255 Hybrid Memory/Display Driver from 1985 week 50 <-- Corrected after Walter's observation. Danke!
1LM2-002 SoC from 1985 week 39.

And it's possible to have it both ways, share a battery pack among the devices, and with the $$$ savings, buy spare battery packs !!!!

And here are some more 'must haves':

video interface
wand
82143 printer and an 82162 printer
card reader (and lotsa cards !!!)

the 82166 battery charger is an odd little critter too

Before spending money on lots of accessories, consider whether you a re looking for the functionality or a collector's item. If it's the functionality, then an HP-IL interface and PIL-Box offer access to virtual printers, displays, mass storage devices, and the huge collection of software in the LIF archives.

I think you mean the 92266A N-cell charger.

Damn! Now I have revealed my best kept secret:
I'm a time traveler from a distant future revisiting familiar places in the past to transfer technology.
Now I have to correct this asap.
82104A Card Reader repair

It was a smooth procedure and it worked nicely after replacing the gummy drive wheel.

Basically I have followed the HP Service Manual included in the MoHPC USB documentation.

And I had a look on some publications freely available online as well (Thank you all):
HHC 2014: HP-41 Card reader drive wheel replacement demonstration, by Geoff Quickfall
Repairing the hp 82104A Card Reader, by Dave the "lostrabbit" and Ty Rogers
HP 82104A (HP-41) Card Reader Repair, by Peter M. Geiser
HP-41C Card Reader Repair - The Short Fix Approach, by Mark Hoskins

Following are some pictures taken during the repair operation.

New rubber wheels were installed. Perfect match and excellent drive.

Final testing.
Before assembling the case enclosure (Not shown in the above pictures):
- Have checked the two switches for proper operation;
- Have adjusted the drive wheel pressure by measuring the motor current;
- Tested for good magnetic card write/read operation.

Feliz Ano Novo!
