Adventures in Mimeo

In 1978, from the club's president:
"The mimeograph I use is an A.B. Dick 535. Previous to 1975, I had an old Sears mimeograph (which was new when I bought It In 1969) which was held together with electrical tape end 'luck.' The motor was not large enough and it become very hot-—so hot I had to rewire portions of it with a regular light switch for the "on and off" controls… I ran it like that for over a year. Fortunately, the A. B. Dick salesman from whom I purchased all my paper at that time was keeping an eye out for any good used machines that came into the Dayton Branch, and when this one arrived, he called me with the good news. It was in incredibly good shape with perfect mechanical parts, and just a few scratches on the plastic case. It had belonged to a church that took very good care of it. The motor Is VERY heavy duty and can really take continual use very well indeed! After the book is run on the mimeograph, I have a little mini-collator which I also found on sale and purchased to put pages together, and this step goes very quickly. Then it's into the envelopes, into the mail, and on to your mail box (along with high hopes that once I drop it off at the post office, it will reach you safely and in one piece!), for you to read and enjoy!"
