WANTED: Daisy wheel printer

I've been looking for a daisy wheel printer to play around with for quite some time, and am really struggling to find one. I've managed to buy two off eBay but both turned up dead-on-arrival. Other vendors that offer tested, working units don't want to ship to Switzerland. So I thought I'd try here...

Does anyone have an old daisywheel printer collecting dust in the basement that they'd be willing to part with? I'd also be willing to consider a typewriter that has a parallel port (like the Juki 2200). I'll be using this with a Windows machine, so I need a standard interface (either parallel or standard serial port) rather that something proprietary like an Amstrad or Commodore interface.

Re: WANTED: Daisy wheel printer

So you really mean Daisy wheel and not Dot Matrix?

Here is a dot matrix that they say that it is new/never used.

Here is the FR for Daisy Wheel printer that might help with the searches. Imprimante marguerite

Re: WANTED: Daisy wheel printer

Believe it or not, I really am after a daisy wheel, not a dot matrix. I've got stored searches on eBay in three languages -- they occasionally turn up in the UK (about once every three months) but very, very rarely in DE/CH/FR.
