  1. This machine was the main method of information distribution for the entire Federal Government for quite awhile… As a Federal Branch tech, I took service calls on these machines coming from the Pentagon, the CIA, the State Department, the Defense Mapping Agency, the Nuclear Regulatory Agency, Pax River Naval Research Center, NIH, USUHS, the National Bureau of Standards, and just about every medium to large print shop in the metro D.C area.

    Xerox must have made an unbelievably enormous amount of money from that product – and spent an almost equally unbelievable amount maintaining them, because I also remember the nearly endless field retrofits we had to perform to keep them running – notwithstanding the constant 100K P.Ms. from each agency running them 24/7/365. And the Chrysler K Car fleet that went through timing belts like toilet paper… Oh, those were the days.

    • Did you ever work with Doug Bowman. He was our field service engineer in the 1973 to 1976 time frame at one the @@ agency you mentioned.

  2. I had a full territory of 9500 and 9900 machines, in Saint Louis at Southwestern Bell Telephone. Every telephone repairman (person) in the SWBT organization got something off of my machines, whether a service manual, service update, or release on the new technology of Fiber Optic cabling.
    9500’s were everywhere. US Army, Scott Air Force Base, GM plant where they built Corvettes and trucks, Anheuser-Busch, commercial print plants. It was the industry standard for many years, and the one to beat.
