Bill Purvis has been working on the printer for the EDSAC Replica Project. The original printer for EDSAC was a modified Creed, model 7. The one being used in the replica Project is a slightly later model (7E).
In recreating the EDSAC computer, a surprising amount of mechanical engineering is required. EDSAC engineering was originally done by hand, but for the EDSAC Replica Project modern Computer Aided Design is being deployed.
In January 2013 the EDSAC Replica Project trustees management committee met at Teversham Engineering where they saw the first replica chassis come off the production facility. They also spoke to camera about their reasons for supporting the project.
