You'll also have to dummy up the fuser temperature sensor, probably along
with a few others. The laser printer will be very reluctant to print if it
sees anything unusual in the way of fuser temperature, fuser heater
continuity, etc.

Actually, a Xerox 4045 might not be bad for this.  It didn't use a fuser
roller, it used a fuser lamp that fused the toner with radiant heat, no
pressure.  Of course, everything ELSE about the 4045 is such a total,
absolute nightmare, plus they have extremely limited graphics capability.
Well, that and you'll need extra supports for your desk...

The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new
discoveries, is not "Eureka!" (I found it!) but "That's funny ..."
