Many years ago (probably 20+) I purchased a couple of CX-85 number keypads from BG Micro for $5 each.  It looks like they found some more recently that they're selling for $20 new.  I thought I'd pass it on if anyone is interested (I still have my two and don't need another).  They also have the large 400/800 PAL crystals and variable inductors.

I have one, but I could never figure out how it worked. Is there some doc for thing anywhere ? I have some CX85 handler from Reeve the printer driver guy or something, but I never got around to disassembling it to see how the CX85 works.

Looks like the original handler disk, users guide, and technical reference notes are all on Atarimania:

That was quick. Got it in the mail, today, cardboard box within a bag, internal contents safely wedged in paper. Noticed it was unbagged (is this typical?)  and there was a bit of  schmutz on the bottom of the device. Lettering isn't as crisp as I might expect, but clean and legible. Could just be the effects of age.Not certain, but maybe if were in a bag prior, there was some reaction between the rubber feet and that situation, causing the smudging.. NOS? Don't know, but unscratched and the key action seems well. It was the last in stock, so may have been the least ideal. icon_wink.gif Anyways, it's very nice condition, otherwise.

So they cancelled my order. I have one already anyways and I'm pretty sure Brad and Bruce have plenty of new ones.

Yep, and you can get it cheapest buying the Bookkeeper kit.
