|Hi Revivo |
I do not think you will be successful in easily connecting the fax.
Remember it is not designed for local working, other than (maybe) producing a copy from a scanned page. Also thermal printing does tend to fade, sometimes quickly.
The fax communication protocol is special. When a pc emulated a fax, it had to have a modem (and software) that included support for this protocol.
Jefro's advice to use a dot matrix printer is good.
These do not use the chemicals you refer to, instead having a carbon ribbon.They can be found inexpensively on ebay under computing/printers or vintage.
If purchasing, you need to ascertain which printer(s) they emulate. Have found IBM graphics suits me best.
I use (and recommend) a OKI Microline ML192 Elite. It has a paper roll holder, holding a single part telex roll (could be multi-part if required), so I can print off short, variable length, pages when needed. Other times I use standard A4.
When printing from the internet, one can cancel the top and bottom header lines if required, which saves paper.
Please advise back on progress. As a matter of interest, where are you located? I am in Hammersmith, West London.
Good Luck - Keep us posted.
