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...
