Sorry for the poor video quality, I was trying to catch the first run on hooking up a junked Toshiba P351 dot matrix printer. It is being controlled with a old Pentium 3 computer running EMC2 (linuxcnc.org), through the use of 2 stepper motor control boards using the parallel port of the computer. I improvised a quick pen holder. The holder can't pull the pen up between letters, which is why there are lines between letters. This was just a quick and dirty setup to have some fun while testing out the stepper motors in the printer to see if they were worth saving for another TBD project.
