    Printer with a straight-through manual feed

    Hi Guys,

    I'm after a cheapo (even second hand) inkjet printer, but it must have a manual sheet feed that allows a thick sheet of card to go straight through (ie not curve/bend around a bunch of rollers).

    Years ago my old Cannon BJ10 use to have a slot in the back which allowed this, so even a second hand (but working) BJ10 would probably do.

    If you're wondering what I'm up to, I'm trying to print directly onto wood veneer (thin sheets of real wood), which are fairly flexible, but would definitely split going around the 180 degree bend in most printers.

    I've tried googling and looking at all the product descriptions, and while I'm sure there are some printers out there that have this, it doesn't seem to get mentioned in their descriptions / technical specs.

    Thanks muchly - Andrew.
    They told me I was gullible ... and I believed them.

    Well a quick Google search using the search term Straight through Printers found this fairly quickly, although I haven't looked at the specific capability. HP DeskJet 1280 Colour A3+ Inkjet Printer: Electronics & Photo
