WTB HP-55 battery door
I bought a nice HP-55 on TAS. It was supposed to be 100% complete and working.
It is working fine but the battery door latches are broken off.

Does anyone have a spare battery door they would like to sell?

Thanks.

Another option is to buy 3D printed replacement latches, found here:

https://www.shapeways.com/product/4LTRMC...d=61111328

Although the item purchase is not cheap, it does include 6 pcs., so you can save some for other machines, and/or sell the ones you don't need.

Also, note that the doors/latches for other classics (45,55,80) are the same so you could also use those. The 65 door is different but latches probably compatible, and 70 the same size, etc. but a different color.

If you look at the HP Calculator Parts & Services article, you will find a link to the 3D printed battery door latches that Nate Martin has made.

Just saw this item you may like. It's not 100% original, but it works and it's cheaper:

Don’t forget, though, that the 55 door is green, and all of the repro’s I’ve seen (at least the ready-made ones or parts) are black. 70 is an even odder color.-kby
