Putting the Star Micronics NX-2420 color dot matrix printer through its paces. Nearly 30 years old and still going strong, at least with new old stock 4-color ink ribbon from Nu-Kote! Greetings hot dogs.

  • Honestly my fav LGR video. The colour ribbon redemption, the nostalgia I don't share but that is so tangible, the coffee morning bit and COOL CRAB! Plus that dithering and the colours really ARE a good look

  • clint should make a small business manufacturing shit like this, old printer ribbons, cpu trays for stuff like socket 7, slot 1 and all that jazz

  • 40 min of printing later only to have the paper tear because the edges where not perfectly perforated. That's my youth in a nutshell :P

  • Man your videos are awesome! Great vibe and awesome content. I could actually smell this video, not just the coffee but also the hot dot matrix print head, really brings back some childhood memories. I think what's happening with the transfer paper is that the heat from the print head is melting the transfer film; that's how it gets transferred into the t-shirt when you iron it

  • Note: to tear off the edges, it's handy to fold the paper and take the edge of multiple layers at once. Also prevents accidents where you tear into the actual sheet. Ah yes, memories...

  • A slower and tedious, but much more aesthetic and deliberate print head and ink delivery system. Impact printing is fascinating. Great stuff, stirs up a lot of nostalgia!

  • I was recently surprised to learn Oki Data still makes Dot Matrix printers. They start around $400. What you really need to find is a high speed line printer . I installed a 1700 line a minute one. The heavy steel posts had to be sunk into concrete and it still swayed over a inch in both direction. One of the guides had you tighten the mounts every quarter.
