I don't have a dot matrix, and I never will again. (I'm still hoping for a TIPI compatible utility for my network printer.)
I do have a cable (shown below) that has been sitting around for YEARS. I do not even remember what kind of printer the TI was hooked up to. If you want to make me an offer +$7.80 shipping, it could be yours.

Thanks everyone. I have a possible deal in place for an old PHP 2500 printer--basically a re-branded Epson RX-80. This one has been upgraded to use both serial and parallel printers.
For now, I will consider my printer need "filled."
Again thanks to everyone for the messages and posts.
Those are good printers. Solid too.

Yeah, but it still doesn't go BRRRRRRRRRRT chunchunchun BRRRRRRRRT as it prints. Feels fake.
You can try using a dot matrix font on the laser to see if you get any nostalgia

That too. Especially at the edges where the perforations are.
For me it's the texture of the paper as much as it is the font.
Fanfold paper "feels" different

I have to say that font is quite good, although it's a little too perfect. Too consistent, too sharp, no horizontal streaks.
