If there is sufficient interest from the community in paying some 
more "reasonable" rates for working mechanical replicas of these
antiques, I have a tiny little machine shop adjoining my study 
and would be amused/interested in constructing a few.  

They'd still be expensive, you must understand; there are a lot 
of mechanical bits that I'd have to individually mill or cast.  
It would entail a lot of very tedious hand work.  And I might 
be forced to use brass in a few places where the originals had 
steel due to limitations on the hardest metals my desktop CNC 
mill can handle. 

They wouldn't be as historically significant as the actual antiques
of course; but they wouldn't be as expensive either.  

You'd be on your own if you wanted to add a parallel port or USB
