    fixyourownprinter.com is the place I used to buy from, at least once, because they provided good instructions. After that I'd get the parts cheaper on ebay

    5L is the one that looks a bit like a leaf chipper, no? Paper feeds vertically from the back and comes up in front?

    I did a 6L once, which is the same thing. It's the separation pads that go on those the most, if I remember - the thing starts feeding ALL of the paper.

    I used to enjoy servicing the old HPs around the schools. They're just so much clockwork and solenoids and assorted mechanical rubbish it was a good distraction from glitched computers. Each makes it's own sequence of noises, clicks, groans, swishes, and when the sound isn't quite right I'd have a pretty good idea which bit wasn't working right. I've replaced fried scanners on IIIP's, rebuilt fusers for 4's and 4050's, dug torn paper out of the gubbins of a 4si (never again), stuck electrical tape between sticky/magnetized solenoid contacts ($30 fix from FYOP.com if I remember...)

    Good times, geeking out

    Later on I'd just wish the things would break down so that we could scrap them and just have to deal with a few dozen photocopiers (with maintenance contracts) instead of several dozen old office printers...

    I had an HP poop the bed so I gutted it except for the rollers and motors, and found a plastic drum (protein powder jug I believe) and turned it into a tumbler. That was how I cleaned my 9mm brass for 3-4 years. Last year it finally quit and I bought it vibratory cleaner, money well spent.

    I have had a Brother HL-L2390DL. It will scan, fax, copy and print. It uses dry toner (which does not dry out) but only prints B & W. It works, it scans very well, it copies great, and while toner is expensive, in two years I have only had to buy it once. Cost per copy is way cheaper than an ink Jet. Got mine at staples. I use it a lot.

    Thank You All for the input!

    B&W it is and like usual price and availability came into play. The chipped cartridges bug me a bit bit it is what it is......
