My New Printer

October 14th, 2007

Yesterday, Terah and I were in a store selling used items. I spotted a good deal: a used printer for $25. Here are some of its features:

  • Support for paper as wide as 13.3 inches
  • Printing clear to the left and right edges
  • Continuous imaging, not based around dots or pixels (therefore, no DPI measurement)
  • Audible warning tone
  • 2-color RK (red and black) printing
  • Ink cartridges cost $3.49 at Office Depot
  • Professional font built in, ideal for business or personal use
  • Very low electricity consumption. Can run for extended periods of time without being plugged in.
  • Programmable hardware margins and tabs, remembered across jobs in NVRAM
  • Print speed up to 0.48 pages per minute at average complexity, but this can be doubled or tripled by using the instant copy feature (requires carbon paper, sold separately)
  • Built-in typewriter emulation mode. People that used WordPerfect for DOS might remember this feature, where you could press a key and the letter would be printed immediately on dot-matrix or daisy-wheel typewriters.
  • All-metal case and mechanism. Little or no plastic.
  • Made in the USA.
  • Manufacturer: L. C. Smith & Corona Typewriters, Inc.
  • Built in 1944
  • Still works

Here are some photos:
