Collector's Notes:

The 267X printers are very robust. For paper, they use normal thermal roll paper sold in most office supply stores for older fax machines. Although thermal printing is a quiet technology, the paper advance mechanism of these printers is plenty loud.

All seven of the 267X printers that have come through the museum have worked. However, most of these required replacement of the printhead drive belt. The old belts become gooey and flake apart. These belts are easily replaced. The replacement belts have 310 teeth and are 629.92mm long. These belts are 3.175mm wide.
