My new(ish) HP-45
Hi all,

A little while back I got a HP-45 from TAS. The ad said it was dead but it looked tidy and I got it for $45.00.

On inspection it wasn't dead but had some half dead displays. I had another old 45 that Harald gave me to develop the MultiCalc on which had good displays so I transplanted the keyboard. It needed half a dozen or so broken CPU to Keyboard pins replaced which came from the new keyboard.

I scrubbed up a powdery blue battery terminal and gave it a polish with nanna's old toothpaste and looks almost as good as new.

The back label was pristine but after reassembly I managed to get most of the wrinkles out and I left out the 2 screws for future work. I don't think they are really needed.

It is missing a battery cover retainer/rubber foot but one will show up one day.

So this finally takes me back to my school days when nostalgia got me started on this journey into HP calculators.
