Does anyone remember a product called rubber renew. It was
used on the rollers and paper pickup of these old printers.
Is there a generic name or substitute ?
Well an office was tossing out an OLD Apple LaserWriter II NTX. manuf.
1991 Oct. It looked in good condition and had a new toner to boot.
Generally I dont bother as most of these old beasts were just apple
talk interfaces only. BUT .....This one has a DB25 Serial Interface.
Too it home, read online docs, reprogrammed printers serial interface
speed from 9600 > 57600. Fired up CUPS and voila a VERY nice
300 dpi postscript 2 printer. (I just sold my stinking inkjet
on ebay yeah) I hate inkjets.
Just can't believe its 13 years old and still working great.
I am currently looking for rubber renew liquid does anyone
know a subsitute ? It would help the paper pickup rollers
a lot i think.
ps: this printer has 3mb ram, and has printer 28000+ pages
